    Can a motor heat up from bad wire connection or just being old

    There are a few different reasons it may be heating up. If you have ever tuned your gun, the shimming may be too tight, or if you put in a large spring, the motor may not be able to pull it. Or maybe your motor height is adjusted too "high" and it's unable to turn the gears. Or your battery may not be supplying enough power

    Or his battery is supplying too much power... For example a lot of stock motors on a higher-discharge battery (LiPos, or high-capacity NiMhs) can heat up, or you are simply firing/cycling your gun too much too quickly.

    The motor will only draw as much current as it needs, how many times must this be repeated? If your motor runs at an abnormally high temperature it may be caused by increased mechanical resistance caused by improper motorheight, or maybe the grease in the gearbox has dried out. It's also possible that your motor simply needs to be cleaned. If there's a heavy carbon buildup on the commutator, or the brushes are worn down, this can have negative effect on the performance.

    performance wise it hasn't changed should I put a MOSFET on it to help and have like a pro do some maintenance on it

    some motors have bad QC and suffers from abnormally high internal resistance. other than that, heavy loads caused by improper gear shimming, speed ratio gears/high fps springs on stock motors, or piston binding within the guide rails.

    It's going to be mechanical. Did this just kinda start out of nowhere? If so you probably just need to re-lube. If you got it like that, re-shim re-grease and fix AOE. Also check your ROF just to check to see if all the cells in your battery are fine, I had a G&P one that had a single fakkd up cell which took the piss.

    When you say "two mags on full auto", how exactly are you firing these mags, and are they hicaps or midcaps?

    if you have a spare motor, drop it in and see if it still heats up like before...
    if you know how to use a multimeter, test the resistance in the motor.

    time to open up the gearbox and tune it up.
