The thing that I dread is the PRSOV. They are in the strut and seem to be bigger than the access hole. The right PRSOV is worse. If they dont open there is very little you can do. You cannot see the indicator, cant get a spanner on it. Its a nightmare.
One tip. When you shut the engines down the Engine bleed OFF lights come on. This is the PRSOV closing. If the PRSOVs are not both shut, the APU bleed will not open. But if you select engine start, with the APU running, the APU bleed valve opens and then the airflow pushes the PRSOV shut.
Another thing is that components on B757 are in different places. Some aircraft have pack controllers on E6 in the aft freight, and some on E3 in the fwd equip. Remember the equip bay inside the fwd freight also. Cant get ground power on? Check the fuse on the BPCU in the fwd freight.
For checking out the autopilot, get yourself a Remote MCDP Tester. Worth its weight in gold. You can then sit in the cockpit and do all the tests, instaed of running down to the MCDP in the equip bay.

BTW, which bus powers the Engine Bleed valves? Standby-DC or Battery?
I undestand they remain in the last position when power is removed.
If they keep open, when you add power to run the APU, reseting ENG Bleed switch Off then On wouldn't close them? (without the need to "fake" an engine start)

Hangar or line work, ?
Remember spacer and tang washer when wheel or brake changing. Take the brake bar pin out before sticking jack under to change a brake unit.
15/16" spanner for tension latch on c-ducts, watch the hinge panel if c-ducts seem tight opening, it may be tight if the hinge panel hasnt lifted. Make sure slats retracted.
EEC not on engine, in elec equip bay.
Power down aircraft if changing BVCU, otherwise you will blow new one, HAS BEEN DONE!
Theres many resets and tests to rid EICAS msgs, but you'll be forever remembering them all, just pull breakers for box relevant to system !!

theres a few !

On the PW2000 powered 757's the PRSOV is located on the engine at about the 10 o'clock position. Makes the job much easier than what you have to endure on the RR powered 757's.

If your changing a PRSOV in a small amount of time, especially the r/h one, take the start duct out first, also, any self respecting 757 mx company will have the big spanner tool for making that gap in between the ducts close up when it seems almost impossible!
You think the PRSOV is hard!! the pre cooler is worse by far, that pylon is generally a box of tricks with jobs one time being easy another day being a pain in the ass.

When doing a nose gaer lube job, don't forget the grease fitting behind the light box (lower hinge of the drag brace). You'll either need a special (homemade) fitting for your grease gun or you'll have to remove the whole box (landing and taxi lights, ground intercom panel, APU fire shut down) to get at it. I think it is the most neglected grease fitting on the 757.
BTW, PRSOV change on the PW2000 engined version is a piece of cake, the high stage valve and the PRSOV are the same part number.

I work the B757 on a line station. We only do Daily checks and send it back to base. I find the aircraft very reliable. The FIM is extremely useful and very relevant. I have about 15 a week and in the last year have had 10 delays. Three in two weeks, a slat actuator leaking, and EDP u/s and a MLG Door actuator leaking. All 3 needed changing, and I had to wait for spares from Homebase. Other than that only minor problems.
Make sure you get a ladder the right height in your van so you can get into the E and E bay, and into the Cargo holds. The aircraft is high off the ground and if you are not 1.80m tall you will need a ladder to do the engine oils.
Talking of engine oils on the RB211 the oil cap often needs levering off, and under it is a float valve which often sticks. So pour the first can of oil in slowly. If it overflows, wait 5 mins and the float usually opens.
Hydraulics transfers from L to R system through the brakes. You can send it back by putting the brakes on with R sys and Off with L system pressurised..

'Battery Charger', 'Warn Elex', 'Stab Trim', 'Pack Bite' messages all come to mind.

Brake leaks, truck positioner leaks, pylon fuel leaks. We've seen a rash of fuel pressure transmitter (PW2000) leaks.

RB211: engine surges (TPU change).

FR8mech is right on the money there, ive had the warn elex and stab trim msgs frequently and plently of brake and truck positioner leaks.
Engine bleed problems go through phases, Hi stage lights and eng bleed lights quite common, you will get to know the 757 bleed system well with RB211 engine, im not experienced with the P+W.
APU surge valve changes are not uncommon and also the 'ovbd exhaust valve ' message, get rid of that one by doing the equip cooling test.

Heck, I forgot all about the surging APU and the inop APU air problems.

The PW2000 is much more troublesome from a chapter 36 point of view than the RR.

But most Warn ELEX messages are nuissance messages and you just have to reset Stby Power to clear them. Stab Trim Messages also often clear through shutting down and popwering up the aircraft.
Anti skid and autobrake problems were quite common as well.

We had a bunch of bleed problems on our PW2040 engined aircraft.

Most of the other stuff was, as mentioned above, APU surges, brake and truck positioner leaks, occasionally thrust reverser trouble, once I changed a rudder PCU for some electrical problem (i forgot exactly what, but IIRC it had to do with the position feedback).
I worked about 5 years with the companiy, that operated, among other aircraft types, 757-200.

That Warn elex message was apparent one one particular airplane last summer, every time you went to start the APU when selecting BAT power on you would get the stick shaker! then you could start the APU as normal, this was always followed by a WARN ELEX message which you could clear by cycling the 2 warn elex breakers.

The two most rash problems that come to mind is:

HF-We had alot of pireps along the lines of no comm and no data link with ACARS. Turns out that the problem with ACARS is that the pilots were not pushing the HF transmit overide button. The no comm problem was usally fixed with a coupler R&R.

ATC-We also had alot of pireps about ATC 1 or ATC 2 fail lights on during flight. Sometimes both failing at the same time. It turns out that Honeywell had corrupted software loaded in the transponders causing intermitent faults.

We had done a MOD here in MCO awhile back that installed EHS (Enhanced Mode S) and Honeywell upgaded the ATC transponders to incorporate the new parameters. When they did this it started to cause chronic failures throughout the 757 fleet. It was a real headache because we were doing alot of troubleshooting before it was found out the transponders were coming out of Honeywell bad.

On the A&P side of the house it seems that the line guys do alot of annulus filler changes on the RR engines. (cracks)
Is it broke...? Yeah I'll fix it.

watch the hinge panel if c-ducts seem tight opening, it may be tight if the hinge panel hasnt lifted.

Thats for sure, we made it company policy to have someone watch the hinge doors when opening the c-ducts, cause if they aren't rigged properly they will catch and it makes a mess to repair. Also make sure the C-duct latch access doors are closed before operating the T/R....we found out the hard way that door is harder than the Translating sleeve....

Communications with the flight deck is a must and clear the engine to the outboard side when done. Stay clear of the the inlet danger zone.

And while we are on engines. RR engine tower shaft leaks. It seems I hear about 1/week leaking.

Warn Elex can a nusiance, but if it doesn't clear 1st time around with the breakers or the IRS alingment, go right for one of the WEU power supplies. Re-seat, beat, pound or replace.

Boeing put out a SB about the cargo door switches. Apparently there has been two incidents where the switch stuck in the close position and injured ramp personnel, one fatally. I've found one so far that the door went from full open to full closed (minus being latched with the door handle of course) hands off after an initial push on the switch. It was pretty cold, about 10F, and once the switch warmed up inside the office after I had changed it, it worked fine. Something to watch out for.

We have had a report of one of our aircraft having the cargo door switch stick in the close position aswell, this is definately something to watch out for.

I have not had any experience of the APU shutting down automatically due to a fire detection fault but even if it did it would still not fire the bottles, that has to be done manually from either the flight deck fire handle or from the nose gear.

Yup. Nowhere near the tech manuals at the moment, but as I recall, you had something like 30 secs to either hit the fire shutdown (pull handle or hit the button on the nose) or the APU fire system would auto-discharge.

It depends on the fire suppresion system. You can have either a dual bottle which I believe dosen't auto-discharge. Or a single bottle auto-discharge system.

From the AMM:

Effective on the following aircraft only: AIRPLANES WITH DUAL APU FIRE EXTINGUISHER BOTTLES;

when the airplane is in flight and a fire is detected, the APU will shut down automatically, and the fire extinguisher bottles will discharge manually.

Effective on the following aircraft only: AIRPLANES WITH SINGLE APU FIRE EXTINGUISHER BOTTLE;


when the airplane is on the ground and a fire is detected, the APU will shut down and the fire extinguisher bottle will discharge automatically. When the airplane is in flight and a fire is detected, the APU will shut down automatically but the extinguisher bottle must be discharged manually.

From what we were told dual bottle a/c will not discharge automatically. Someone has to discharge the system. The apu will shutdown if a fire is detected but that's it.

The single bottle system discharges automatically because you only have one shot at putting out the fire and the sooner the bottle is fired the better the odds of putting out the fire before it can grow any larger.

I looked it up in the AMM today and sure enough the bottle will fire automatically on detection of a fire and obviously shut down the APU. But I also looked in the 767 AMM but could not find anything in there about an auto discharge system but I did not have much time to read through it though so might have missed it.

Sorry for the duff info I wrote down earlier in this thread.  Yeah sure

Quoting ATLAMT (Reply 42):

It does not make sense then.If Fire is the concern.Then Two bottles or One Bottle.Unattended mode should fire both types.
We were taught on Single APU Fire bottle.As our B752SFs would be equipped with one.So I need to check the AMM.But my instincts say it should be the same.

Quoting TristarSteve (Reply 14):
Talking of engine oils on the RB211 the oil cap often needs levering off, and under it is a float valve which often sticks. So pour the first can of oil in slowly. If it overflows, wait 5 mins and the float usually opens.

Put cap on, then try to pull of as quick as possible. Usually clears the air lock.

We had a bit of problem with cold soaked APUs in winter. Often, when trying to start them you will get a "low Oil Pressure Fail" auto shutdown and fault light. Try to start them again and again (in some cases you'll need to reset the ECU, IIRC it locks out after three failed start attempts).

You can drop the complete unit using the IDG stand in about 2 hours, both heat exchangers ram air inlet and ACM plenum, easy little job but it looks like you've done loads so it impresses the bosses! not really too much to look out for either, just make sure you clear the ACM plenum on the way down, otherwise you here the grinding of composite!
Waht does IIRC stand, guess its 'if I recall' or something like that?
