View Full Version : Engine overheat quits working?

Over the past few days I have been flying on several scripted servers and have noticed that after a time the engine overheat does not function.

I found myself being able to leave the engine at full throttle without getting a message regarding my engine overheating. The engine temp gage is also pegged on highest temp.

Has this happened to anyone else? What is the cause?

Hmm, I can't remember the last time I've gotten an overheat. Thought it was just good engine management. Hope so.

What aircraft are you flying.. I have found that the auto setting for cooling on some of the German aircraft is working now , and it keeps the aircraft motor running alot cooler , and at high alt it take alot to over heat..

Yep, was flying the FW190 mostly. It seemed to not overheat at all. Maybe you guys are right about the cooling being efficient? I will try offline to overheat the 190 and see what happens.

I fly the 190 offline and as long as the rad is set to auto it will not over heat. any other setting and it will.

Out of fuel? Just a shot in the dark http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I have found on just about any plane, you can fly on 105% power till you run out of fuel with radiator full open and the engine never burns up... Pretty unrealistic if I do say so myself.

I've noticed one other thing regarding overheating. If I maneuver a lot at low speeds (250-320 km/h) i.e being involved in a dogfight, the engine overheats a lot quicker. But if I fly fast in a straight line with the same plane and at full power, it will not overheat. WHat about that? Did they take airflow into account when modelling overheating?
