Sputtering

Recommended Posts

I am a new Joyner owner. I bought a used Joyner Commando 650cc with only 25 hours on it. It lives in the mountains in Arizona. I have had it since June. Ran fine. Now it sputters especially during acceleration. Not as bad after warming it up but still sputters. Any ideas?

How long an interval between the times you drove it? Remember today's fuel has to be stabilized if the toy is not used regularly. If it was a long time, more than a month or two, I would first try running some injector cleaner in the fuel. Then move on to the tough stuff, Is it electrical or fuel related?

Another possibility is water got into your tank via condensation from the temperature going up and down, during my flying days, they taught me to alway keep the tank full to prevent this. If you have rodents around, and you probably do in the mountains, when it's not being used, put a few moth balls or urinal cookies in or around it, or so I hear.

I usually try to drive it every weekend. the sources of gas are sparce up there in the mountains so, yes, the gas does get old. I have tried some fuel stabilizer and the Mystery Oil brand stabilizer. any other products that you would recommend? Does this sound like a carberator problem? What would make you think it is electrical? it has the battery it came with and the other electrical things seem to be working. Does it need a tune up? In my jet ski and snow blower (I used to live in Chicago) I would take out the spark plugs and spray carb cleaner in there. would this help?

thanks for your input

There are mice where I am but I don't see any signs or droppings around the vehicle. If there is condensation in the tank then what do you recommend?

You have injector which are much more reliable than a carb. Get some injector cleaner and put it in the tank per the directions on the bottle. After that start checking connections problems. Start at the fuse box, take it off and check the back also, and carry on thu-out the wiring. Electrical problems are very hard to find!

Check your gas filter too. Actually I would do a flow volumne test on teh pump itself. When you accererate, your fuel/oxygen ratio goes up and if the filter was plugged, it might run fine crusing but when you get on it, it starves for fuel. Keep the spark plug wires seperated by pairs. the 2 out of one coil can be together. Also block them up so they don't touch any metal of the engine. If wires were bad you could get some cross talk between them and a stronger spark is required for acceleration so slight cross talk could only be showing up on acceleration.

    • 2009 Joyner trooper starting problems

      I have a no cranking issue with my joyner. It has a chery 1100. It will click but nothing after that.  New battery. I tried banging in the starter while holding key in start(old car trick). Now the  starter solenoid won't even clunk. Just hear s click fron the relay now.  My assumption is the starter needs replacing.  Any ideas of other things to check? Does anyone have diese block diagrams?  Got no clue what fuse or relay goes to what

    • First timer. 09 joyner sand viper.

      So I've been in the anything motor lifestyle since I was 8 doing methanol kart racing. Currently I'm building a 04 Z06, 08 Cobalt SS,  an 08 Tundra, and as of last night my first Joyner buggy. I've waited for years for this. And, this is the first forum I've ever joined (next lol to the corvette forum). Currently I'm wheeling a Honda foreman 450 4x4, a built 400 ex, an argo 6x6, a 48v ez go lifted cart, or my geo tracker 4x4. I'm out of Conroe (north Houston TX). I look forward to learning from y'all and feel free if you ever have questions or wanna talk anything wheeling. Thanks for the awesome forum!

    • 2016 Joyner T2 1100cc 4 wheel drive

      I have a 2016 Joyner T2 that is giving me problems engaging in and out of 4 wheel drive.  I have read some older posts that address this issue on some older models, but can't get any of the older pics to open for a good explanation.   I have not taken anything apart at this point.  Hoping some mechanically savvy Joyner owners can help me out. Thanks

    • 2009 Hisun Supermach 500, Stalling at idle and hesitating under acceleration

      Hey folks. I recently acquired a pre-owned Hisun 500, carburated. And surprise... it has issues. When cold, it typically starts without any issues, but once it warms up it tends to sputter and stall out. When accelerating, you can also feel it hesitating occasionally, and when you stop or put her into reverse, she will often stall.  The fuel is clean, I installed a new fuel filter, and the air filter is clean. Though the fuel pump appears to be working ok, it makes a strange knocking sound whenever power is put to it.  I've never heard anything like it, and I'm not sure if its shot or just a cheap Chinese pump thing. I have an aftermarket pump coming, and I've ordered a new ignition coil as well on the off chance that it is faulty. I am hoping replacing these two parts will solve the issue,  and if it does I will post the results here.  If not, anyone have any other ideas?  Also, I've noticed it is very difficult to find parts for this make... any suggestions on a good source for Hisun parts? I appreciate any comments or insights.
