Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.
I would look to replace the condenser on the engine. It is getting warm or hot and not firing until it cools back down. If there is no condenser on your engine then it would be the ignition coil.
Which engine is in this cart?
You ignition coil should be mounted externally, you should have access without pulling the shroud off on that engine. Follow the spark plug wire backwards from the plug and you should find the coil mounted to the outside of the shroud.
It definitely sounds like the coil is your problem. It will run until it gets warm or hot then quits firing and won't fire again until it cools off. You will need to get the shroud off in order to get to it on this engine. The way that the engine is mounted into the cart does make it difficult to get to but in order to solve your problem it will have to come off.
