Engine idling in flight

Recommended Posts

Hello.

I just wanted to do one simple flight with my DA 40 after some time, but engine RPM dropped to idle and power lever stopped responding. Temperature on 2500 ft where it happened was -8,7, scattered clouds, but I had heat turned on and cabin heat too . I honestly did not expect that to happen . I also did not found alternate air source as is suggested in emergency procedures. I could use some explanation here.

Edit: I just remebered that it is injection system. SO here is additiona data , heating was on pitot and both handles, fuel pump was on 2400 rpm in cruise and about 25 power. I am positive that low air temp caused this, but it is weird since my A2A Cherokee flew normaly in -30 degrees celsius in alaska.

Thank you

 

if needed I can try to get some data maybe.

 

data for altitude where my engine started ildling:

temp -8,7 dew point -11,3 alt 2350 humidity 81,4
