Got what I hope was a good deal on a Coleman 400 aka Hisun HS400. Previous owner returned it to TSC and it wouldn’t start. I pulled the plug and it’s fouled. Cleaned it and it sputtered, but fouled again. I did test for spark after cleaning and had a nice white spark. Plug is an NGK R DR8EA. I will be getting a new plug and a fuel filter to install inline. I was going to open up the fuel tank and check for debris and drain the tank as I have no clue how old the current gas is. Currently it won’t start so just trying to get it going so I can trouble shoot the rest.
Pull airbox and check for obstructions and clogged filters, replace.
Crank and check plug.
Disconnect 02 sensor and see if it starts
Check timing chain tension
Any other things I should look at. The plugs seem to have some oil, but that could be carbon?

Ok so it’s brand new, first time taking it out it struggled going past 35ish on a slight incline and seems the “top speed” is only 45mph? Has anyone gotten theirs to go any faster? If so how? Is there a speed limiter/governor on these? I know, if I want speed buy something else, BUT I just want to be able to go 50mph because where we hunt we have to ride in and can’t unload anywhere that’s safe besides in town. Any help is appreciated!!

Need advice on a fuel filter. This is a 2019 Coleman 550 Outfitter. Manual said to change fuel filter. Mine was assembled without a inline filter between the in tank fuel pump and the injector. I called Coleman, they told it was supposed to have a fuel filter. They sent me a metal inline filter and two clamps. The fuel line has what looks like an aluminum outer cover. I’m assuming the fuel line is a rubber one. Before cutting the line I looked at the metal fuel filter to see the direction of flow. Nothing marked on the filter. I called Coleman.…. They couldn’t help me, even after speaking to a Tech rep. It’s fuel injected, so I don’t want to screw this up. Does anyone have any ideas? Should I throw this filter away, and buy something else? I have replaced plenty of fuel filters on lawn mowers etc, but all were clear plastic, with directional arrows. Since this fuel injected, I’m thinking I must ypuse the special clamps, that require special pliers to tighten, and I might need a pressure capable filter?
I need some help.
I bought a new Renegade in June 2021 and have only put 60 miles on it and the other day checking cows I noticed the oil light on and the oil gauge reading zero and the oil light on.
Is there a better oil sensing unit than the factory? I've ordered one from Joyner ($60) but would like to have a supply if they are going to go out after 60 miles.
Its maker has affectionately dubbed it Teslaris, for obvious reasons.
The Polaris RZR RS1 UTV has a one-liter, two-cylinder engine that from the factory has around 100 horsepower, making the 1,383-pound (627-kilogram) UTV very quick. But there’s always room for more power in one of these vehicles, and instead of fettling with its engine, one dune vehicle aficionado decided to swap in the rear drive motor out of a Tesla Model 3 / Model Y.
We don’t know how many of the battery modules the put in the vehicle, but it doesn’t appear to be much heavier than stock and it goes up sand dunes with remarkable ease. Depending on which version of Model 3 was the motor donor, the drive unit could have either 261 or 325 horsepower, as long as the battery pack can supply enough wattage and voltage.
Judging by how easily it flies up the steep sand dune, almost lifting the front wheels off the ground under harder acceleration, it’s safe to say it looks like a real hoot. The steep grade you see it tackling in the video uploaded by the electric UTV’s creator, Ron Cobbley, is located in the St. Anthony, Idaho sand dunes.
We found more videos on vehicle’s official Instagram account and aside from how interesting it is to see an electric powertrain in an application like this (and how it changes the vehicle), we also noticed that you really hear the tires on the sand more. Usually, this sound is drowned out by the engine.
The sound’s tone and pitch probably change with speed, giving the driver audible information to help him or her gauge their speed. You don’t really get this in a road-going EV driven on tarmac, which is why it’s trickier to drive an EV quickly - specifically because you have no way of knowing how fast you’re going just by ear.
