one engine wont start in FSX steam

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have FSX steam on a cyber power PC with a GTX1070 and a AMD processor. However when I load the game now with almost any add on plane it starts the game with one engine off. I've gone through correct checklists to start it and I have even started other engines on the plane but there is always one engine that refuses to start. Whats going on? Can anyone help?

Did you change the aircraft in the default saved flight?  I have found that if the default saved flight uses the stock Cessna 172SP with the fuel selector set to "both" and the ignition switch set to "both magnetos" there are no issues with starting other aircraft, especially add-on aircraft.

Try <Ctrl>-<Shift>-F1 to turn on fuel flow to all engines. One of them might have the fuel cut off.

I believe  "<Ctrl>-<Shift>-F1 to turn on fuel flow to all engines"  actually SHUTS-OFF the fuel flow:

It's  <Ctrl>-<Shift>-F4 to start the juices flowing...

Yep! An even better idea is to set up your default flight (using the default Baron or 172) and we,tying the mixture to full rich before saving.

Yep. I did get that wrong.
