Snow sled ? I guess 2 stroke engine .I think you are loosing top end power by what you say .In the mini moto world if the clutch is not adjusted properly it can ruin the performance ,I dont have the settings so get a manual . But first have you checked your air cleaner is clean and that the spark plugs are new . I think a sled may have a basic carb if so does it have a low (L) high (H) adjustment screw on the carb like a chain saw if so try turning out the (H) screw by 1/4 turn, if this does not help remove the exhaust down pipe and look into the cylinder and move the piston up and down to check for any scores any score that can be felt with finger nail is no good on a 2stroke, so replace parts . I dont know if this will help if not get back in touch with more details thanks .

Sounds like a mixture problem, how high above sea level are you? a clutch if it fails will only slip giving higher revs not lower, good luck andrewsmith01@optusnet.com.au

Generally if the clutch is slipping you will have high rpm's until you get up to speed ( which will be at a reduced rate ) I'm a little familiar with sleds, but is it carb or injection. If it's injection I would say there is a fuel ( tuning ) problem going on . Maybe a mapping issue. It could be loading up at the top end , and when it drops down in rpms it changes back to a section of the mapping that is not loading up. If it's carb, You might have the float set too low, so when you're opening her up, she starts starving for fuel, or it could be a jetting on the main jet problem.

High emmisions loss of power at 3000 rpm diagnostics says no fault found


You didn't mention what sort of car you have.
You can try disconnecting the electrical lead on the MAP sensor. Then give the car a test drive.

A faulty MAP can cause high emissions, erratic running and high fuel consumption.

You can also try cleaning the EGR - the exhaust gas recycler valve.

It's strange that you have no fault codes. There is no check engine light illuminated?

Yes, that is normal operation for an engine. It needs to run at higher idle when cold and the computer does that through the temp sender. Make sure it's not excessive due to any vacuum leaks. This and the AC power loss would be exaggerated if the engine is not running correctly.
