LJ35 Random Flame-out

Recommended Posts

In P3Dv4 I have been experiencing unexplained engine flame outs multiple times per flight with no rhyme or reason. I can manually restart no problem but it will happen again 30 mins later. Any thoughts?

I don't know what weather conditions you have been flying in, but you might try turning on the nacelle heat to see if that makes any difference.

Thanks Al,

I tried that after the fact last time just for giggles but to no avail.

Does this happen at all altitudes, or just in clouds, or is it completely random?

This happens at all altitudes and and weather. No consistent timing either. I've tried with all available heat and anti-ice on as well as the igniters to no avail. I should add that I hold a LRJet type and have been trying to isolate the bug but, have found no resolution yet.

That is really strange. I would recommend a complete reinstall because I have never had that problem. The only other thing I could think of is if your fuel panel is not set correctly, but since you hold a Type Rating and can airstart immediately afterward, then I think something didn't quite install correctly.

 

Please keep us in the loop.

Just a wild guess here, but could one of your controllers be sending an erroneous signal that is shutting off the fuel flow?

Stans might be on to something. I hadn't consider that possibility yet. And, since no one else seems to be having the issue I'll do some testing. 

 

Will report back.
