2012 mule 4010 gas won't start

Recommended Posts

I just got this thing a few weeks ago. When I got it it would run but try to stall out if I got more than an idle. I replaced the fuel pump tonight because my jeep had the same symptoms when the pump went out on it. After I replaced the pump it will fire off but die instantly. Any help?

Check the gas cap gasket. My 610 mule ran like shit after an hour of running. The gasket in the gas cap was blocking my vent hole in the cap. The gasket was also upside down according to the parts diagram. I havent had an issue yet.

Possibly as fuel pressure regulator? What about the filter?

What would the fuel pressure regulator be and how would I check it?

I'll check that too

The regulator is likely in the tank. Did you replace the whole assembly, or just the pump?

Just the pump

Personally I'd likely put a lot of effort into making sure the injectors aren't gummed up from the gas that's sold these days. I understand the gas that's available, causes most of the problems like yours.

After posting earlier, I did a quick Google search, and it seems that these gas units are a bit finicky about gas quality, and the ethanol is the worst. So I'm thinking I'll revise my opinion towards the regulator.

Since you recently acquired this mule, you probably don't know much about the mechanical history of this thing. So I'd start with the basics. I'm certain it's in the fuel system, although I've been wrong many times before. And barring any unforseen issues such as your pressing the throttle, prior to starting, (some people do as a habit of starting). My gut feeling is the injectors. Although it could easily be one of the sensors, but I'm thinking that you'd get a warning light if that were the case.

Started messing with this again today. Pulled the fuel rail off and couldn't get any gas to flow through the injectors. I'm going to run down to the hardware store and get some carb cleaner and try yo clean the injectors. Is there any tips on cleaning them

You tube has some good video on this, where they use a battery and carb cleaner. I've never tried it, but I can't see how it could fail to work.

      Hello.  I purchased this unit as a "non runner" with the intent of using the frame to build a go-cart, but once I got it home it seemed way to good to part out.  The motor cranks over, and I have spark, but no fuel.  If I put a little fuel in the cylinder it fires up until that fuel is burnt, then of course it dies.  The fuel pump is not running and I have removed the plug and there is no power going to it.  I have checked the safety switch on the brake pedal and its fine, I have checked the fuses, all good, but am not sure where to go from here. The shifter is missing on the unit, but the indicator light on the dash shows its in neutral, and the e-brake indicator switch is working as well.  I am thinking of jumping power to the fuel pump next to see if it runs and if the motor will start.
      What am I missing?  What can stop the fuel pump from getting power to it?

      Last October we were sitting at an idle on a Sunday morning and it died for the first time since we time since we bought it new I've already sent it to the shop because it's under warranty after trying to fix it. New fuel injector new spark plug couldn't do a compression check because I couldn't find anything to fit it but now that it's at the shop I have a feeling that the exhaust valves tighten themselves up and they are not closing anybody ever have this problem?

      New to the forum! I have a Cazador UTV that is not flowing fuel from tank to carburetor.
      How do I verify that all vacuum hoses are connected to their respective components?
      How do I prime the fuel pump?
      This is a Christmas gift for my 8 and 5 year old little men. I would certainly appreciate any advice.
      Thanks in advance,
      Jesse

      Interesting problem.   My Massimo runs great - but when the fuel level drops just a bit, it just stops.    It restarts easily, but I have to keep my foot on the accelerator pedal.   When I top it off with gas, it again runs fine.   I already replaced the fuel pump, but that didn't work.
      Thanks for your help!

      2017 model.    I have checked the wiring, and even replaced the fuel pump.    The gauge still doesn't work.    Thanks!
