Post subject: Engines Won't Start!

All of a sudden, none of the engines on any of my planes will start...They crank, but won't actually start...I have checked everything I know to check...Calibrated my controls...All master switches are on, there's fuel in the planes, but they just won't start...Help will be appreciated...I have loaded stock flights and the engines still quit...At wit's end! Thanks!

Steve

It sounds like a fuel mixture control problem is worth investigating.

And if you do have your engine fuel mixture set to manual, is it adjusted to full rich for starting?

I believe this setting is in options and should allow you to set it to "automix".

Good luck and let us know if that helps.

I have checked everything I can think of...The mixture is full rich...Fuel tanks are full and on...Neither automixture or manual makes any difference...I have allowed FSX to rebuild the .cfg file...I have tried numerous flights and missions...Nothing...I guess I am looking at a reinstall of FSX (Groan)...I'll hold off for today to see if there are anymore ideas out there...Thanks a lot...

Steve

Did it happen after you added something? You may try rolling your computer back to the last time FSX worked well. If not, I'm afraid it's backup and reinstall FSX time. Too bad, but it does sound as if you have a corrupted file of some sort... (Groan).

Let us know what you find... Wink
