Cart Maintenance Tips in 2023

Regular maintenance is crucial for optimal performance and longevity of your golf cart. By following these cart maintenance tasks, you can prevent downtime and costly repairs.

Electric Carts with lead acid batteries:

  • Monthly, check the water level in your batteries to ensure they are properly filled.
  • Clean the battery terminals regularly to prevent corrosion and ensure a secure connection.
  • Verify the tightness of the terminals monthly to avoid any loose connections.

Gas Carts:

  • Check your oil levels monthly to maintain proper lubrication and prevent engine damage.


  • Monitor tire pressure monthly, adhering to the PSI guidelines provided in your owner’s manual. This promotes optimal handling and extends tire life.

Brakes and Rear Differential:
