Go into the self diagnostic function on the dash, It will tell you if you have any DTC'S, And you can look at real time data. And perform sensor test's.

Maybe you can help me out also. I've got an 08 700 rhino also. I have tried and tried to find the fuel filter and just can't locate it. My shop manual also don't show a fuel filter. Where is yours located? Thanks.....Sasakwa

You will need the yamaha shop manual for the diagnostics, it will guide you thru it completely. The filter on the 700 is on the bottom of the fuel pump inside the gas tank.

I just had the same issues with mine and it turned out to be bad gas. Ended up draining the fuel tank and putting fresh gas in it and she runs like new again. It does not take much water in the fuel to cause the rhino to run poorly or even run at all in my case.

I'm not actually having any fuel problems with my 700. It's just that common sense tells me to change the fuel filter but to date I have never found it nor have I found it mentioned in the shop manual. I just looked at the breakdown of my fuel pump inside the gas tank and my shop manual does not show a filter. I bought my Rhino new in 2008 and have never found a fuel filter nor have I found a grease zert and Lord knows I've looked..

There's only a screen on the bottom of the fuel pump. No fuel filters on the FI models.

I just had the same problem.I thought the engine was going to fall out almost. Figured it was the MSD. Changed that out but still was not right. I added fuel Sta-Bil fuel stabilizer and Heet Injector cleaner into thew gas. It smoothed everything right out. Could not believe it. Don't know if I had bad gas or what. No matter it's working now.
