Common Problems with the Hisun Sector 750
While many owners have reported some of these issues, they may or may not be specific to the model or manufacturer. These issues are the most common problems recorded amongst Hisun Sector 750 owners. If you own this particular UTV, you may not ever experience any problem at all, then again you might come across something not covered here.
Overheating Engine Problem
UTVs work hard whether on the job site or at play, so overheating is a common issue among many manufacturers. Sometimes the issue can be from low or an improper mixture of coolant, which can cause it to boil over. Clogged radiators and malfunctioning fans also contribute to engine overheating.
Always check your coolant and make sure it’s at the proper levels. While you’re checking the coolant, be sure when adding coolant you mix it properly with water according to the directions.
Some owners have reported boiling coolant. Often this is from an improper mixture of coolant and water. Most coolants work better when mixed with plain water, so follow the manufacturer’s instructions when adding coolant.
If the fan isn’t running, you’re not getting that extra air blowing over the motor to help cool it. This can be caused by loose wires or a blown fuse. Make sure all wires are clean and have a good, tight connection. Replace any blown fuses.
Another fix can be the addition of a second fan to make sure the engine doesn’t overheat.
While running over dusty trails, mudding, or other non-paved terrains, dirt, mud, and dust can clog the radiator. This blocks air from helping to reduce the temperature of the coolant. The fix for this issue is to clean the radiator with a water hose.
Popping noises or misfiring can be caused by a loose exhaust pipe or a hole in the exhaust system somewhere. A dirty air filter and even cheap gas can cause this problem.
Once the vehicle is completely cooled off, check the exhaust system thoroughly. While riding, you could have run over a rock or a big branch that knocked something loose or punctured the muffler. Tighten anything that’s loose, and repair any holes.
Make sure the air filter is clean, and replace it if necessary. While you’re at it, be sure to refuel with quality gasoline, or add fuel system cleaners to help.
Vehicle Won’t Start
When your vehicle won’t start, there could be several reasons behind it. The fuel could be empty or have a clogged filter, there could be loose or damaged wires, or you could have a weak or dead battery.
Make sure your battery is fully charged as well, and replace it if it’s unable to hold a charge.
Other problems could be a faulty ignition switch or even a blown fuse. Check all of these potential problems and fix anything that seems amiss. If none of the above issues is the cause, you will have to get a mechanic to check the problem for you.
Problems With the Clutch
Some Hisun Sector 750 owners have experienced clutch issues after many driven miles. The clutch is a part that will have to be replaced occasionally during regular use. When the Sector 750 has clutch issues, it’s often caused by dirt accumulation.
If you are mechanically inclined, you can clean your clutch, and clutch belt with compressed air after removing the housing. You can also check the belt tension, if it’s loose it will cause loud noises and clutch problems or fall off completely.
Continued clutch problems can often be remedied by installing a high-quality, aftermarket clutch. These are meant to withstand the extreme stress put upon them when climbing steep hills, or towing heavy loads.
If you don’t have much mechanical experience working on Utility Terrain Vehicles, you should enlist the help of a trained mechanic to help you or do this job for you.
