Club Cat uses a micro swithc that kills engine when it comes back to idle. This switch may be loose or out of adjustment. Located in the same box as the starter solenoid. See picture.

What engine do you have? Year model? Some models use engine with timing belt. Maybe out of time?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Club car 1991. Unsure of the motor size. There is no timing belt. Replace spark plug too. It is a 4 stroke engine.

Ok, have you tried a test line from the fuel pumps inlet line, back into the fuel tank filler opening and test drove? Bypassing the tank, suction tube and line to the fuel pump?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No we have not bypassed, we have replaced them.
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 1 year ago.

Just a test that I like to run, to eliminate any possible fule suction problem.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It is getting fuel to the car, you can see the the fuel, they are clear gas lines....
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 1 year ago.

OK, i still suspect the micro switches, but you say they are new and are working. Let me opt out and see if anyone else will reply. Sorry.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Can you tell me why you would suspect the micro switches? It does start, but quits when you try and go. We have now taken the entire motor apart, all good there, reinstalled and still doing the same thing. Uuugggh
