Starting Engine Problem

Recommended Posts

Hi,Just started using FSCrew and am a bit frustrated. I am having trouble firing up my engines. They try to start but only reach 5% N1 and just stay there. The other odd part is the manual states to have the Bleeds Off - Yet after calling out the startup sequence the FO turns them ON. Weird eh?Please help out this noob. Yes I have FSUIPC latest and PMDG svc pk 1ThanksAnthony

Hello Anthony,How are your packs and bleeds configured before Engine Start?When you start FS2Crew, ensure the APU is ON (APU generators, too).The Packs and Isol Valve should be in AUTO.The engine bleeds should be off, and the APU bleed should be On.Leave them configured that way.If you don't configure it that way, the FO will move switches incorrectly.Let me know what happens.Cheers,Bryan

You might check that the fuel shut-offs on the throttle quadrant are in the off position.Terry

Yes, that could be it.If you load the PMDG 737 as per the manual, the fuel levers will be in the idle position, and the FO will move them to cut-off during his Receiving flow.-Bryan
