Troubleshoot Backfiring In A Columbia Par Car Golf Cart

There could be several reasons your golf cart is backfiring.

There can be a temptation not to consider golf carts proper automobiles, but they can often fall foul of the exact same problems which can affect a car. For example, backfiring, a problem you might think only affects road-going vehicles, could just as quickly hit your Columbia Par Car Golf Cart. If this turns out to be the case then there are several steps you can take to remedy the problem.


1. Visually inspect your spark plugs. These are responsible for providing the spark that ignites the air and gas mixture and if it is dirty or damaged then this could be what is causing the cart to backfire. Clean or replace the spark plug, as required.

2. Inspect the gaskets on the golf cart‘s engine. These are what keeps the vital gases inside the engine compartment, and you may find escaped gases are causing the cart to backfire due to a lack of power.

3. Ensure the distributor cap is not damaged or cracked in any way. This can cause the cart to backfire; the cap should be replaced if there is even so much as a hairline crack.
