My Foreman suddenly quit yesterday after running for a short while and wouldn't restart. After several hours, it started up fine and ran for a while. Tried it several days later and the same thing. I realized I hadn't heard the fan for a while, so I disconnected the temperature sensor lead and grounded it and the fan worked. I am weeks away from getting another temp sensor so I tried to run the machine with the fan lead grounded (and running continuously). The machine went a further distance than before but again it just died. Note that when I grounded the lead the temp light stayed on. Realize that it is extremely hot right now in Belize.

Question: Is there an overheating safety feature that shuts down the engine if it gets hot (besides the temp sersor)?

In addition to replacing the temp sensor, should I consider replacing the oil cooler?

Any advice would be appreciated.

I don’t believe it has an overheat shutdown.

I would suspect perhaps a fuel restriction, but ignition problems can be temperature related.

I’d suggest the next time it quits and won’t restart, see if it has spark and/or open the drain screw on the bottom of the carburetor and see if you get a steady stream of fuel coming out of the bottom of the drain hose.

Good suggestions and also leave gas cap loose to make sure tank vent is not pugged.

Yeah you could just crack the cap after it quits to confirm the vent works.
