2015 renegade x 800etec. 5000 miles. For the last season and a half ive been having intermittent problems where at high speed/rpm the sled will just fall on its face. Feels like fuel pressure just drops off completely. If i let off and hammer it, it would go good again for five or ten seconds and then fall on its face again. It wasn't that big of a deal so I didn't worry about it, i'd read a ton of posts about this exact thing regarding fuel pressure regulators so I kinda assumed it was par for the course.
Last weekend im cruising about 50mph. Dash starts beeping, check engine light comes on, sled slowly bogs out and dies within seconds. No weird sounds from motor or anything. I start it back up and its idling rough, sounds like its dying out, and if I touch the throttle it dies. Dies once, started it again. On the second start up, the oil light joined the party. Starts flashing "no oil." I had 3/4 tank of oil. Touch the throttle, died. Got one more start up for a second or two and then it died completely and wouldn't even attempt to fire from then on. Turned over freely and seemed normal.
Checked compression today. 150 both holes. Tore the sled down and removed the fuel tank and my next move is gonna be to check fuel pressure and the regulator.
Anybody have any insight here? If my fuel pump just bit the dust/regulator came loose or fell off in the tank would that throw a check engine light? What about a "no oil" light? After the second or third start up the gauge cluster was kind of going haywire too, but I figured that was from the three start/stops of the motor during the initialization start up sequence confusing the gauge.
Anything else anyone can think of?
