Custom Golf Carts Columbia is here for you to answer any of your golf cart maintenance tips. Your golf cart may have been in storage during the winter, but that does not mean it won’t need a little TLC before the first day you want to use it in the spring. Follow these golf cart maintenance tips to make sure you and your golf cart are good to go this Spring:

Gas Cart Engine Maintenance: The oil, air filter element and spark plug should be changed every 12 months.   Clutches are a very important part of the operation of a gas cart and should be checked every 12 months.  If they are not performing properly your cart can become sluggish and tend to have a hard time climbing hills.  If you notice the engine sound has gotten louder or smell exhaust fumes, you could have a cracked muffler or exhaust pipe which should be checked by a service technician.

Tire maintenance: Check tire pressure monthly and fill it to the manufacturers recommended pressure (22psi for most tires).  An under inflated tire can cause uneven wear and shorten the life of the tire and also put a strain on the performance the cart. Uneven wear could also be an alignment problem.  Hitting a curb or uneven weight distribution can cause the tire to go out of alignment. The alignment should be checked and tires rotated if necessary.  Proper tire pressure, rotation and alignment will extend the life of your tires.Cracks or separation on the walls of the tire is an indication that they need to be replaced.

Brake Maintenance: Brakes on the cart should be checked and serviced every 6 months.  This involves checking, cleaning and adjusting of the pads, drums, cables and pedal.  Brakes not properly serviced can cause costly repairs and also be a danger to the passengers in the cart. If you notice your brake pedal is low and/or squeaking have a service technician look at them right away.

Rear Differential: This is the rear end of the golf cart and what drives the golf cart.  The oil level should be checked every 12 months.  An oil leak could cause costly repairs, so ff you notice oil or excessive dirt on the outside of the differential this is an indication that you could have an oil leak.
