Club car gas powered cart will run and sputter if you

Customer Question

club car gas powered cart will run and sputter if you excelerate to much. I just replaced the carborator and fuel filters. I have a new fuel pump ordered. It is also exhausting smoke heavy at times. This cart had not been run for 1.5 years so all the fuel had been drained and tank cleaned before new fuel was added. What could cause the sputtering and smoke?

The fuel pump could be problem, but is the oil over full or thin and smell of gas? Have you replaced the spark plug? Does engine start easily?

It seems to have power from the battery and the key just controls the gas. I guess it does start easy when you step on the gas it hesitates for a second and goes. I have not changes the plug and the oil does smell of gas.

If oil smells of gas , the carburetor was dumping fuel into the crankcase. And always try a new spark plug! Go with the new fuel pump, change the engine oil and replace the spark plug/
