Yamaha Golf Cart Has a Whining Noise In Motor Or Rear End


New Member
I have a Yamaha golf cart with a whining noise in the rear cant tell if it is rear end or motor. The golf cart hesitates and motor appears to be getting hot. I checked differential fluid and it was good. The motor almost acts like it is in a bind. How can I test the motor?


I would pull the motor and inspect the coupling and motor bearings and check the input shaft. Check motor brushes too.
