EGT

Post by Cdupuis »

Hi, I’ve got a DA40 with an IO360 and the G1000. The EGT on cylinder 4 climbed off scale with no change in CHT. Happened out of the blue on a local scenic ride. No change with advancing mixture. Any ideas?

I had the exact thing happen in my DA 40 IO-360 when the engine was, I think, about 60 hours. It turned out to be an almost microscopic piece of plastic in the injector. Cleaned the injector. Back on my way only two hours late.

Recently had a similar issue with one CHT being all of a sudden higher than the others. My partner in the plane ran some tests and put together the attached presentation which I thought was excellent. Replaced the spark plugs for that cylinder and issue is resolved.
