737 Engine Start Procedures?

Recommended Posts

I just got the 737-800/900 and was reading and looking through the manual. I am probably missing something, but I cannot seem to find the engine start steps. The checklists in the normal procedures section mention before start and engine start, but then seem to go to after start. How about the actual start procedure? With the 600-700 I found detailed steps in Fred Clausen's tutorial. Thanks. Tom

Tom,The "engine start steps" for the -800/-900's should be the same as the -600/-700's.Floyd

Thanks Floyd. I'll use those then but for my own curiosity, are they in the manual anyway or just the tutorial? Tom.

Sorry, he's right I think, can't find the engine start steps in the Documentation. Anyway, here is a engine start sequence out of a real -700 FOM.Captain - Announce engine start sequence. Normal start sequence is 2,1. Call "Starting Engine No____." Position ENGINE START switch to GRD. Verify increase in N2 RPM.First Officer-Verify increase in oil pressure by the time engine is stabilized at idle and call "OIL PRESSURE RISING" when observed.Captain-Acknowledge first officers report for "OIL PRESSURE RISING."Position engine start lever to IDLE detent when:-N1 rotation is observed and-N2 RPM reaches 25% or (if 25% N2 is not Achievable)-At max motoring and a minimum of 20% N2. Max motoring occurs when n2 acceleration is less than 1% in approximently 5 seconds.Captain and First Officer-Verify fuel flow and EGT indications.Capatin-At 56% n2 RPM check ENGINE START switch moves to OFF: if not, poistion start witch to OFF.First Officer- Verify START VALVE OPEN alert extinguishes as the ENGINE START switch moves to OFF and report "STARTER CUTOUT."Captain and First Officer-Monitor N1,N2,EGT fuel flow and oil pressure for normal indicatins as the engine accelerates and stabilizes at idle.Aloha,Floyd
