Default Slow studdering operation

Looking for some assistance with my 1994 electric E-Z-GO.
Got it a couple of months ago and after a few cycles of charging and using
the cart it seemed to work well, although probably for only 30-40 minutes.
Just recently after a charge it is studdering to try and go, but will not
operate with any gusto! I am thinking batteries, but wanted to hear from the forum if I should check anything else before I take the big expense.
Appreciate folks input
Cheers
Doc

Sounds like you may have a short and/or loose connection somewhere in the wiring. I would check and/or replace any loose connection.

And check your batteries with a voltage meter to see if they are putting out the correct voltage.

Stuttering starts are usually a sign of spent batteries. Buy and learn to use a $25 digital multimeter, a sparky owner's best friend.

All the connections I cleaned. I will get the meter out and
take a look at what they show me. Could it be a battery itself that
is shorting out?

Since it runs, there is no short. How old and what brand are these batteries? Water levels correct?

Water level I have been keeping a good eye on.
They have needed filling every few days, but seems to have
been working in the past. They are Trojan T105's. If I replace
was looking at the NAPA 8146 if the cost was greatly lower then the
$120 for the Trojans.
Any thoughts?

If you have the means, my first recommendation is always Trojan T-105's.
