Question about Golf
I have a 96 EZ GO gas golf cart with loose steering. What parts are normally needed to correct this problem and are special tools required for me to replace the parts.

It sounds like one of your rear wheel bearing hub has gone bad and needs to be replaced before you lose your wheel. I am thinking to pay attention to the right rear wheel hub bearing than needs to be replaced, they go for around $170.00 at Auto Zone and they can give you the step by step instructions to get the job done with common tools or you can use there loner program if you need to borrow a tool you may not have. With the car parked walk to the rear wheels and push and pull on the top of the tire (Side to side), feel and listen for any play. You should not hear or feel any play at all unless the wheel hub has gone bad. It take less then 1-1/2 hour to change the wheel hub and less if your good with tools. Good luck and keep me posted friend. Be safe.

you need new signal switch assembly. unfortunately federal laws do not allow john q public to remove the steering wheels as the airbag has to be removed. Take it to the dealership or a reputable repair shop.

so many possibilities...
does it roll fairly freely? (checking to see if the brakes or rearend seized up)
Are there any "bad" sounds like things grinding? (Connection between Motor and rearend, axle splines...)
If all that is solid, it is likely in the controller.... (it takes a solid charge right... No bad batteries in there or loose connection? might want to check all the battery connections to make sure none are burnt...)
1997.. does it have the electonic speed control by that year? the other possibilty is that the accelerator is not working corectly. they used a resistor system on old ones that has contactors that would get worn out.... Newer ones control a potentiometer(sp) that controlled the speed.
Only a few real components to check, but if you are not mechanically and electically inclined, could be tough to isolate.
