SR22 Won't Restart


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

I've got a persistent problem in that the SR22 won't ever restart once the engine has stopped. No combination of fuel, spark, and air will get the engine to catch again once it's been stopped.

Is there an easy fix for this? Other forums indicate that this problem may have something to do with battery levels, but I don't see a correlation here I believe.

Thanks for any help you can provide.

I am also looking for a way to simply start the SR22 in the sim. I fly the real SR20/22 and can start them easily but no chance to start the engine in x-plane.

Seriously, what is the point of such airplane in the sim?

Can I have an easy start button?

@Tomatl Most likely the engine is being flooded, I would recommend trying a flooded start procedure. 

If you check the "start with engines running" option in the X-Plane main menu, the aircraft should start with the engine running.

I have this option set. Sim starts with engine running but after some time it just stops and I cannot restart it no matter what I do.

No idea what kind of failure sim is trying to simulate. Restarting sim every time engine stops is just not right. X-plane also  hangs one every second or third starts so it is not fun.

Something seems to be messed up with the install. Can you delete the files inside the X-Plane 11/Output/SR22 folder? This will reset the engine and physics model to new.

This is most likely due to a combination of two things:

  • Flooding the engine. Prime the engine only for ~2 seconds. Anything >3 seconds can start flooding the engine which makes the starts very difficult
  • Use less throttle. The throttle needs 1/4" of throttle on the real plane. Most X-Plane throttles have much, much less travel than the real aircraft's throttle. This might mean you need to use 1/8" or less of throttle to accurately depict the throttle setting.
