Hello Folks - newbie here with my first post so go easy on me. I picked up a Buck 400 in May 2020 direct from Massimo when they were doing a closeout sale on the 400 models. I read the reviews and was skeptical.
We live in a golf cart community we do not plan any off roading - just some very mild work tasks like hauling firewood / brush etc. Honestly, all we do is cruise around our neighborhood roads. I pulled the trigger b/c the price was cheaper than a 2WD lifted golf cart and the Buck had way more features.
We have a few steep hills and after about 20 - 30 minutes of cruising, my check engine light comes on. It only happens when we are going up or down one of the hills . We head straight home and things seem fine the next day. Light never comes on unless we tackle multiple hills during one ride.
Should I be worried?
PS - Unit is 4 months old and has 258 miles on it - barely broken in. I've yet to go full throttle on a flat or up a hill.
I have a 2010 hisun 700 carb model, it was running great all spring during covid then all of a sudden it started stalling at low RPMs and now wont idle at all. It will run if i keep my foot on the gas but its just doesn't sound right so I stopped running it.
My first thought was bad fuel, we had a lot of rain this spring and thought maybe condensation so i drained the tank, changed all the filters and even got new gas line and removed the second tank just to be safe after reading about not need it, still nothing.
Cleaned the carb and still nothing
Bought a new carb just to be safe as they are cheap enough and still running rough
Found the other issue with the Second Air Supply and a hose that comes from the exhaust that was broken, bought a new one of those and tried to attach it and it disintegrated in my hands when i touched it so i tried to attach it to the 1/2 that was left just trying to see if it would complete the vacuum but still ran rough
Changed the oil and filter too just in case it was that but still nothing
Took the new carb apart and cleaned it just to be safe, took out the air/fuel cover which is the stupidest thing when they send it to you without a screw driver to take the cover off so drilled it until a screwdriver could unscrew it - turned it all the way in then backed it out 2 full turns (like everyone says is the starting point) and it ran worse.
Bought a new coil just in case the spark was the issue, installed that and getting good spark so not that.
Bought a new air filter and have to still put that in so will try that tomorrow
Anything I missing, I have tried all i know and there is not enough youtube videos on repairs on these carts so looking for you folks to see if you can assist and give me some guidance on this issue

We just bought a 2014 Massimo 1100 with only 27 drive hours on it. We took it out a couple of times and then the check engine light came on. We took it to an authorized massimo shop and they can't figure out what's wrong. Any advice?! We are in Utah.
It's a sad day for country music fans worldwide. As well as the country music community. A country legend has passed. And I feel like I've lost a piece of myself. I grew up with his music, playing in the background of my youth. A soundtrack of better, less complicated times.
One of the best fiddlers in country music, and probably best known for his song, The devil went down to Georgia. It's been said that if anyone could beat the devil in a duel of fiddles. It would be Charlie Daniels. He was a true American, and a fine musician. Although he's gone, his music lives on. Thanks for the years of talent that you shared. And thanks for the memories. "God bless America, and God bless music city." And God bless the CDB. Rest in peace Charlie Daniels.
