2015 Massimo 1000 dying and not starting


Recommended Posts

It will run great for a day or so, then it will randomly die, sometimes starting right back up, sometimes not.  Other times it just won't start at all for a couple days then fire right up the next time.  I have drained the gas, refilled with fresh gas, changed the spark plugs, and replaced the entire air filter.  Besides buying a new fuel pump to try, is there anything else someone can suggest.

Hard to troubleshoot from a distance.  It could be the fuel pump on its way to the graveyard.  I had a similar problem with my car.  Can't rule out an electrical problem (broken wire, faulty ground or loose/dirty connector) that controls the fuel pump, fuel injectors or the ignition system.  You'll be looking for the proverbial needle in the haystack.  Good luck.  Before replacing the fuel pump, try installing a fuel pressure gauge to see if you have sufficient fuel pressure when the problem occurs.  Or you can connect a hose to the outlet and route to a bucket to see if you're even getting fuel when the problem occurs.  If you're not getting fuel, find out why (faulty fuel pump or not getting 12v to run the pump).  Randomly replacing parts to fix a problem can get frustrating and expensive.

To check out the fuel pump, it should prime for about 3 seconds after start up, you should hear it. I would check for a pinched fuel tank vent hose, as this could cause a huge pressure lock inside the tank. Next I would suspect it might be electrical in nature. I doubt any fuel injector problem as that is pretty rare. Some of the things that cause this issue would be a faulty coil, or bad pick up coil sensor. It takes fuel, spark and compression to fire an engine.  Normally a stalling issue or no start, to me it sounds like electrical, but check the fuel pump first. You can open up the fuel cap and when you put the UTV ignition switch on and not start, you should hear the fuel pump whine for a few seconds then shut off. If you dont hear the wine, I would think the pump is bad. If you hear the wine everytime, then chase the electrical system.

      Less than 40 miles can barely start. Dealer is working with Hisun on a number of other issues on this UTV. Can not get clear info on the meaning of these E codes this is getting. Anybody have some clear info for me?

      We own a 2020 Kubota RTV-XG-850, with only 400 hours on it and it has been at the dealer 3+ months. We were just informed our engine failed and requires a complete rebuild at only 400 hours! There is a loss of compression in cylinder #1, which is causing backfiring and a loss of power. There is also excess gas in the engine oil. 
      We are just outside of the manufacture's warranty period, and they are serving us a nearly $5000 repair bill, with only a 90 day warranty.

      A member at a different forum had the same issue at 22 hours and fortunately, his RTV is under warranty. He was informed that "short tripping" (as Kubota describes it) causes gasoline to enter into the engine oil, which causes a dilution of engine oil and eventually leads to catastrophic engine failure. This killed our engine in under 400 hours!

      Is anyone else with a 2018-2022 XG-850 running into similar issues?

      I just purchased an Axis Pro 750 from Lowes.  I have two questions not covered in owners manual.  1:  In the glovebox there is a 12V connector, it is HOT with key off, is that for a battery maintainer to be plugged in or what is the purpose?  2:  In the instrument cluster there is a digital read out for hours, miles and odometer,  there is also a digital readout that is flashing, it can be adjusted and looks like 1 - 24  what is it?

      I realize that many of you do not have diesel machines.  For those that do, this is for you:
      Just wanted to post my experience this past week.  Here in Texas, we had pretty good dip in temps.  For 4 days it did not get above 25.  At night, it was single digits or close to it.  I always put Sta-Bil fuel stabilizer in the storage tank (30 gallon).  And up until this tank I was using Power Service (white bottle) for anti-gel.  Never had an issue.
      This tank, however, I switched to Stabil All season (anti gel).  It is supposed to good down to -40.  Zap.  That is a big fat lie.  I put in twice the amount called for in the instructions.  Result was less than optimal.  I drove the SxS 100 feet (to go get the mail) and it died.  I looked at the fuel bowl and it was a cloudy, wax substance.  So, the Stabil did not work.  That said, I'm not sure that I ever tested the Power Service in the same manner.  So I am not saying that one is better than the other.
      What are your experiences?  Are these products inferior?  What do you folks in the northern states / Canada use?  Am I missing something?
