Sputters then Dies...but, will start and idle

2006 Aquatrax Turbo

Will start fine and run then sputter and then die. Start back up, run a bit...then die again. Also Limit Mode displays on console at times when restarting.

What am I looking at as the problem?

To me, sounds like a fuel issue.

I thought it was fuel also. But, after filling tank and adding SeaFoam...same issue. It will idle and run fine up to 4000 RPM...then starts sputtering. Let off the throttle...instantly run fine.

Think Turbo might be going out?

If the fuel pump is failing it will not supply enough fuel, but sensors could be the prob also, or there could be a issue that is putting it in limp mode. That limits rpm. You really need to find the repair manual for it.
