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

Recommended Posts

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.

Is choke working properly? Also check valve settings.

Thanks for the tips Aussie1. The choke cable appears to be working fine, although I have not measured cable movement to ensure it is within specs.  The machine is ten years old, but it has only 600 kms on it. I suppose I could check valve clearances, but I haven't largely because of the low mileage, and because it goes from running fine to flaming out. When you start it back up, it runs fine at idle as well at higher RPMs. However, once you let it idle again for a few seconds, it begins to pop a bit and then stalls.  If the valves required adjustment, I imagine the problem would be more consistent.

I still suspect either a potential problem with the fuel delivery (I have a new pump on its way), or a faulty ignition coil. I guess I'll see if the problem is resolved once both parts are replaced.

I would also go along with fuel or ignition issues.  A lot of "could be this" or "could be that".  Just a few things I would check:

Could be spark plug wires (insulation) breaking down (had that problem on my car once).  Start the engine and look to see if you can see St Elmo's fire around the spark plug wires.  More pronounced if engine is under load.  Best if you can do this at night with very little light.

Could be the fuel pump.  Can you check fuel pump pressure and volume?

Carburetor may need cleaning.  High speed jet may be partially clogged.

The popping could be a sign of sticking valves.  Especially if it sat for a very long time.  Do a compression check.

Thanks Dan B. Great suggestions. Exactly where I've been sniffing around...

Fuel pump was super cheap at $40, so instead of wasting time testing pressures, I replaced it. Intermittent issue persists. 

Carburetor was yanked, disassembled, and  thoroughly cleaned before reassembly and re-installation. I didn't find anything obviously unusual whilst in there... jets were all clean without obstruction. Intermittent issue persists.

Ignition coil including the lead wire , also really cheap at $60, so I'm just gonna replace it too. Then I can be certain that any gremlins go out the door with the old part. 

Spark plug, $5. Turns out the existing plug is actually not the recommended plug as its heat rating is too high. Though I doubt that would cause the issue, its being replaced with a new one at the correct heat rating. 

I was hesitant to start getting into the engine, but if the ignition coil and new plug do not resolve the issue, then valve inspection and  confirmation of their clearances is were  where I was heading. 

Overall, the issue presents like an intermittent fuel or spark problem. Quickly tapping the accelerator to rev the engine repeatedly sometimes results in a major bog, almost to the point of stalling out if you do not let off. But only sometimes... If the valves were out, or there was a compression issue, it seems to me the problem would be far more consistent. I am leaning towards a weak spark compliments of either a faulty plug or ignition coil, so I will post results here when the new parts are installed... hopefully by the end of the week.

Thanks for your actionable input; much appreciated!

Just wandering if you found the cause of your problem? I have a 2017 Husun Vector 500 with similar issues. Thought maybe I had bad  fuel, but have ran a new tank of fuel and still have the problem, runs Ok when cold but after it warms up, it sputters and bogs down when accelerating. Also has a bit of backfire going on when you let off the gas pedal as well.  

Thanks for any help you may be able to provide.

Hey Gregory,

Yes, I did manage to finally figure out what was causing the  hesitation and stalling - the ignition coil. The thing is, when I tested the faulty coil, everything came back according to spec. It was only because there was literally nothing else that could be wrong, and I found a cheap replacement part on Amazon that I thought I would throw another part at it.  After installing the new coil, the problem was solved.  I assume that the original coil was faulty and when it warmed up, that's when it would begin to glitch. Oddly though, the side by side will still backfire sometimes after  you chop the throttle following heavy acceleration . I blame China.

Im also having an issue with my hisun ys 400 hesitating upon accelerating once warm, when its cold it runs smooth with tons of power, Im considering replacing the carb. but I havent checked into the ignition system i guess.  I have cleaned the carb in an ultrasonic parts cleaner. Does anyone have a procedure for testing the coil?

Mine was a faulty fuel injector. Less than 150 hours on it.  Now its making a loud thumping noise from the differential.  Hope its just a drive shaft u-joint.  Not impressed with the Hisun at all.

      Hello I know I started this topic before but I have lost it.  So here is the story, I bought this XLT 500 earlier this year it is was and still is in rough shape the ID plate is gone, faded paint, bad window, etc...  When I got it, it ran rough and the all of a sudden  it quit running.  So I started looking into it and found no spark.  No biggie changed plug, and coil, still nothing.  So went and replaced the coil wire, still nothing.  So I have gone pretty far now.  I have replaced the stator magneto, the voltage regulator, CDI, I do have the crank shaft position sensor but have never figured out where it goes have been told around the stator but have yet to find it.  Have chased wire out and still nothing.  At the coil I have one wire giving good voltage the other one nothing, and when you crank it the voltage goes all over the place.  So besides the key I have changed every part that has to do with the starting that I can find.  So information on what I am missing or doing wrong would be great, it acts like the kill switch on the brakes is stopping it from starting, however I have bypassed that to make sure that was not the problem and still nothing.  So aside of parking this thing in the back and letting it die a slow death I am at a loss on what to do next, Help!

      I have a 2011-12 Hisun Yard Sport HS700. Engine gets hot, but radiator does not. Changed the water pump, still the same. Service manual parts #15, 16, & 17 (pages 283-284) shows a "Save Temperture" #15, which looks like a thermostat. Service manual also parts #9, 10 & 11 shows it without a thermostat. Does this unit have a thermostat?

      I have owned my 2015 Hisun HS700 Crew  for about 3 or 4 months now. I got it used and was supposed to run good but was not put all the back together from a stator upgrade due to previous owner said he was going to out a stereo system on it. Anyway I have worked it much more than I have rode it. I seem to work on it 2 days and ride it for a hour. Me, my wife, and 2 kids (10 and 18) enjoy it but the engine compartment gets so hot. I've replaced the water pump and burped the cooling system and any other thing I could think of to bleed the air out and think its good with no air and water circulating. Fan seems to run fine and be on about all the time. Changed the coolant twice and oil 3 times. I noticed the engine really has nowhere for heat to go because heat rises and no air flow at all. Has anyone had any experience in this area? Any DIY tricks or any advice in removing the heat out of the engine compartment and getting it to a tolerable temperature. Im about to sell it if I can't figure something out and go waste money on a big name brand but I won't have red legs and arm from engine heat burning me and my wife. They machine never acts like its to hot or anything but it feels like it is. Thanks in advance for any and all help.
