Petrol Golf Buggy General Maintenance


    Do not overfill engine. Too much oil may cause engine to smoke or spark plug fouling.

    When adding oil between oil changes, do not mix brands and viscosity grades of oil. Both the oil dipstick and fill cap must be in place before operating the engine. Failure to install the dipstick and fill cap will result in oil becoming contaminated and/or oil being discharged into the engine compartment.

    The oil should be checked with the engine warm. The vehicle must be on a level surface with the park brake engaged. Allow adequate time for oil to drain into the crankcase before checking.

    Remove the dipstick and wipe off the entire area indicated with a lint free cloth. Insert the dipstick fully into the dipstick hole and remove. Examine the level of oil on the dipstick. The engine can be operated safely as long as oil is within the safe operating range as indicated on the dipstick. Do not operate vehicle if oil level is below the safe area indicated on the dipstick. Oil should be added to bring the level into the safe operating range. Do not overfill. Check that the oil fill cap and dipstick are firmly in place.


    To reduce the possibility of engine damage, be sure that bottom tabs of cover are installed in enclosure and top of cover is installed under top tabs. Secure all spring clips.

    The air cleaner unit on the vehicle is a dry unit.

    Do not use oil on the filter element or any part of the unit. To aide installation and sealing, petroleum jelly may be applied to back side of cover tabs and each side of filter seal.

    The air cleaner is attached to the engine and may be accessed by raising the seat. Inspect and replace air filter in accordance with the Periodic Service Schedule the air cleaner element is accessible by unsnapping top clips from the air box and swinging the cover open. Remove cover and air filter element. Clean inside of cover and enclosure. Install the new element in the same way the old filter was removed, being sure that the filter seal is correctly installed. Insert cover into the lower portion of the enclosure and swing it up into place. Squeeze housing together and secure with top clips. Be sure cover fits under tabs and all clips are fastened securely.

    Do not use compressed air to clean the air filter; doing so will damage the filter which may result in damage to the engine. If the element is in an acceptable condition, loose dirt may be removed by tapping the filter lightly. Do not use oil on the filter element or any part of the unit.


    Do not use more than three (3) pumps of grease in any grease fitting at any one time. Excess grease may cause grease seals to fail or grease migration into areas that could damage components. Putting more than three pumps of grease in a grease fitting could damage grease seals and cause premature bearing failure.


    Use care not to over-tighten the plug.

    Over-tightening can cause damage to the aluminium cylinder head threads. Remove and inspect the spark plugs at intervals indicated in the Periodic Service. All new spark plugs should be properly gapped before installation. Apply a light coat of anti-seize compound and tighten to 18 ft. lbs. (24 Nm) torque. Fouled spark plugs are indicated by a wet, black appearance. This could be caused by a dirty air filter element or other restrictions in the air intake system. Incorrectly adjusted valves, spark plug wires which are in poor condition or poor quality fuel could also contribute to the problem.


    The direction selector is a mechanical device that operates cables connected to the rear axle. The cables are sealed and do not require lubrication, but may require occasional adjustment. The only other maintenance required is periodic lubrication of the linkage and related moving parts.
