New Mule runs like shit when warm

Recommended Posts

I have had my 2014 leftover for just 2 weeks. Seems like when I use it to plow for a few hours, it wont idle. I can normally smell a strange odor, and I have to feather the throttle peddle to keep it running. Its been back to the shop 2 times in the past week or so, and they claim it runs fine with them. I told them it does it when I use it for approx 1.5-2 hours. According to the hour meter, they used the machine for about .7 hours,,, so of course it didnt act up on them. I think its a dirty carb, but they arent willing to tear it apart to clean it.

Help

Have you tried anything to narrow the problem down, such as fuel pressure? Does it continue to run badly, after it's been shut down for awhile?

When you have a problem like this, you'll have many different systems that are suspect. The carb does seem likely, but it could possibly be a fuel pump, or filter. Or maybe the electrical system, once warmed up completely, could cause the misfiring.

Personally I'd be setting up to read that fuel pressure before and after it starts acting up.

The Dealer wasnt helpful. I troubleshot the problem and found the rubber gasket in the fuel cap was blocking the vent hole, which was pressurizing the intake. Problem is fixed.

Similar problem. But story is, mule 550( early model), vacuum driven pump. Was set up for about 2 yrs and gas tank rusted, carb rotted. I replaced the bowl gasket, cleaned the carb, replaced all fuel and vaccum lines. Mule cranks, runs smoothe for about 3 sec then sputters and dies. Will not run at half throttle, only wide open and idle after 30 sec. I have replaced the vaccum line, cleaned and gapped the plug, recleaned the carb, and still doing it. Any new suggestions?

Hey, just an update. I have cleaned the carb like three or four times so the carbs virtually spotless. I replaced the plug and still the mule 550 runs bad. It idles with a little studder, when I press the gas it dies like the choke is pulled. But if I go from idle to WOT it runs fine. I just can't run wide open all the time. Someone suggested the throttle linkage was off but I haven't messed with it. Any help? Once again it has new fuel pump, gas tank washed out, new fuel and vacuum lines, new plug.

      Hi friends, I have a new utv Hisun 700. My problem is idle adjustment.  How is idle adjustment done? While my engine is idling 2500- 2700 rpm. I need idling adjustment 1500 rpm. Where I am, there is no master who understands this tool. How do you do the idle setting? Can you help me? Hello everyone. Thank you.

      I'm in need of a brake master cylinder for my ride.  Appears to be leaking between the reservoir and the cylinder (picture).  Is there a seal that I can replace inexpensively without buy a whole master cylinder assembly?  Can't tell if the master cylinder is the same as used on the Trooper because I don't have a Trooper parts manual.  I don't know if the master cylinder is different when they went to the 1100cc engine.  Has anyone had experience with master cylinder make for the Kinrod Joyner line of rides (I believe it's a German company)?  They are available on Amazon but the configuration isn't the same as OEM.

      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?

      I am working on a ride for a friend of mine, it is a Gunner 250. Machine was parked last year because it wouldn't idle right. It would idle way up then back down to almost stalling so they parked it. His kid now wants to ride it again so we've gotten it out. First thing we did was drain old gas and re-fill. Changed filter and spark plug. It will start right up but immediately dies. Checked for fuel pressure it and it is good. You can spray starting fluid in fuel injection and it will do the same thing. Fires right up then dies. Anyone have a clue what this could be? I appreciate any help I can get! Thanks

      I just bought a 2019  MSU 400 w/ 700 miles.  I got it home yesterday and noticed a faint rubber burning smell.  I can't track it down.  I'm on dirt so its not tires and pavement.  Parking brake is off.  Temp on the machine appears fine.  Thx for any suggestions   I thought maybe belt but I'm not racing nor going but a mile or two.
