Tao Tao Zummer- major issues

To start I should say, I do not know a lot when it comes to small engines, scooters, or repairs what so ever. Please be patient with me as I am trying to learn.

I have a 2014 Tao Tao Zummer

It is a 4 stroke and it has some major issues

It will hardly start and when it does it dumps out a large amount of white smoke from the exhaust. If it runs it's only for a little and I have to have the throttle all the way open, if i let off it dies, and eventually it just dies anyway.

Where should I start while trying to fix it? Thanks!

This is going to be fun watching you get flamed out of here.

toss it off a cliff, come back with a real moped.

Check the exhaust valve clearance would be a good starting point..also make sure your carburetor is clean and jets open...get a new spark plug...

Best help I can offer! Get yourself a proper 2 stroke. I mean everything works in a logical manner, but your on the wrong forum

Jiggle the handle. Replace wax doughnut. You might have a bad flapper or the float valves shot...

Re: Tao Tao Zummer- major issues

Hey Parker, people are giving you crap because you are asking for help with scooter, not a moped.

You'll have more luck on a site or FB group that focuses on scooters.
