Question HELP !! Rhino shut down on me

I have a 06 660 It just turned off like I turned the ign switch off, would just crank after that. Let it sit for 20 mins and fired right back up, ran great for the rest of the day. No temp light came on. (Maybe bad cluster)?? Does the 660 turn off when overheated? No coolant leaks, everything looks fine. Im stumped. Any info would be great!!! Thanks in advance!!

My 450 has started doing the same thing the last couple of days. Mine's a work rig so if it's not running I'm not making money, not cool. I'm thinking the fuel pump is getting hot and vapor locking. I took the fuel line off the tank and blew into it, started right up. You guys might try it. I'm going to slap a fuel filter in it because it could use it anyway and throw some water dropper outer in the tank for the ol' college try but I think a new pump may be in order. Anyone else know what might be going on?

out of gas

You are running out of gas...and the pump MIGHT be at fault but more often than not there are other causes...

This a thread for a customer with a 450 running my hi volume fuel delivery kit for the 450...

It made sense for him to get the high volume kit since he had an electric pump...and the guy he got if from did not plumb it correctly...and he did not have the oem pump..

Here is a thread in our vendor section where you can read what our customers who have the premium fuel delivery kit for the oem pump for the 660 say...

Agreed. Sounds like a fuel issue.

Mine quits under only one condition. Hot, idling, hot ambient temperature (mid 80s) and little or no wind. No fuel drains from the float bowl so I'm sure it's running out of gas. If you pull the choke, it will start and run. These machines have a fuel enricher don't they? I think thats why it'll run for a short time, until the enricher is depleted. Then I can either let it sit for 15 minutes or blow into the tank vent to pressurize the tank or blow into the fuel line then hook it up in time for it to pick up fuel before it runs out. I got a Rhino because of the bomb proof reputation, I guess nothing is perfect.

have a 2006 450 and had the same thing happen to me..was running fine, stopped to scout a bad spot in the trail i was going down and it just died..would turn over fine just wouldnt start..about 30 min later it started up like nothing had happened and ran fine the rest of the ride. fuel tank was almost full, thermostat light never came on, ran fine up to that point, ran fine after that.

My fuel kits eliminate a lot of these kinds of problems and make it very easy to find out what the malfunction is if it is something not addressed buy the kit itself...

You guys can see what my 450 and 660 customers who have these kits say in our vendor section in this forum...

This particular example might be pointing at inadequate venting for the fuel tank. The rollover check valve has been known to stick for whatever reason.
When a Rhino just ups and quits running, loosen the gas cap and close it back up after a bit. Then try restarting it; it might take a bit of cranking if the pump lost its prime. If you hear a hissing of air, that was indeed the culprit. It tends to be more of a problem if the tank is full. Letting it sit for a while allows air to slowly leak in, temporarily curing the problem by itself.
