Aston Martin DB11 2021 Introduction and Owner Maintenance Checks User Guide

Introduction

Due to the sophistication of the various systems and the specialised equipment required to maintain this vehicle, owner maintenance should be restricted to the routine procedures described in this chapter. If you think that this vehicle is not functioning correctly, please contact an Aston Martin Dealer for the vehicle to be professionally checked.
Parts and Lubricants
Aston Martin recommends that when performing a servicing task, the recommended lubricants (Refer to ’Fluid Specifications’, page 12.11) and parts are used.

Caution: If oils or lubricants are used which do not meet the required fluid specification, vehicle components may experience excessive wear, a build-up of sludge and deposits or cause increased pollution. If it is evident to Aston Martin that use of products other than those which are recommended by the manufacturer has caused damage to the vehicle or engine, Aston Martin may refuse to authorise the repair of such damage under the terms of the manufacturer’s warranty.

Electronic Fuel Injection

Warning: If the fuel system is allowed to run dry, the fuel pump(s) can be permanently damaged.

Warning: Any modifications or additions to the fuel system not specifically designed by Aston Martin are prohibited. If installed, they can cause damage to the fuel system which, in some circumstances, could cause fire. All Service Action and Safety Recall Actions must be undertaken by an Aston Martin Dealer.
The electronic fuel injection system requires specialist equipment and test facilities to set up and maintain so that the vehicle gives maximum performance, coupled with the economy, reliability and safe vehicle emissions. You are, therefore, strongly advised to entrust all service work to an Aston Martin Dealer.

Restraint Systems
Aston Martin recommends that the inflatable restraint systems (airbags) and seat belt components installed to this vehicle are replaced at 10-year intervals from the date of manufacture on the certification label.

Servicing Precautions

To avoid personal injury, the following safety precautions must be observed when the bonnet is open and the engine is operating or the ignition is on.

Warning: Protect yourself against dangerous substances.

Warning: Keep hands, hair, tools, items of clothing and jewellery clear of all drive belts, pulleys and operating mechanisms. The cooling fan may operate even though the engine is not operating.

Warning: Avoid skin contact with all exhaust system and engine components, engine fluids and escaping steam. They may be hot and can cause scalding or burns.

Warning: Any loose objects, such as ties, should be removed before working on a vehicle. Any jewellery should also be removed before working on a vehicle, especially work on the electrical system.

Warning: Catalytic converters convert harmful exhaust gasses into less noxious substances and so reduce environmental pollution. They operate at high temperatures and continue to radiate a considerable amount of heat after the ignition has been set to off.

Warning: Do not breathe exhaust fumes. Exhaust fumes contain carbon monoxide. Carbon monoxide is a dangerous gas, which is colourless and odourless and can cause unconsciousness and may be fatal. Never start or leave the engine running in an enclosed, unventilated area.

Warning: Do not work beneath the vehicle with a vehicle lifting jack as the only support. Place suitable stands under the vehicle.

Warning: Keep children and pets clear of the vehicle. Do not let anyone inside the vehicle unless specifically working to your instructions.

Warning: Keep hands, hair, tools, items of clothing and jewellery clear of all drive belts, pulleys and operating mechanisms. The cooling fan may operate even though the engine is not operating.

Warning: Avoid skin contact with all exhaust system and engine components, engine fluids and escaping steam. They may be hot and can cause scalding or burns.

Warning: Any loose objects, such as ties, should be removed before working on a vehicle. Any jewellery should also be removed before working on a vehicle, especially work on the electrical system.

Warning: Whenever possible, work in the engine compartment with the engine cool, the ignition off and the vehicle battery disconnected.

Warning: Petrol is highly flammable and, in confined spaces, is also explosive and toxic. In the event of spillage, set the engine to off. Do not use a flame or spark near fuel or fuel vapour. Do not smoke near fuel or fuel vapour. Do not inhale fuel vapour or fumes.

Owner Maintenance Checks

In the interests of safety and reliability, it is advisable to carry out the following checks at the intervals suggested (more frequently if your vehicle is heavily used or operating in adverse conditions), and always before starting on a long journey. Refer to the following pages for advice and check procedures.

Before Use Check:

  • Operation of lamps, horns, indicators, wipers, washers and warning symbols
  • Check there is sufficient fuel for the intended journey, particularly at night and before entering motorways
  • Operation of the seat belts
  • Operation of the brakes
  • Check for fluid deposits underneath the vehicle. Weekly Checks (daily if driving large distances or touring)
  • Tyre condition
  • Coolant level
  • Brake fluid level
  • Air conditioning operation
  • Windscreen washer fluid level
  • Check the operation of windscreen washers.

Fuel Filler Bowl

During fuel filling check that the fuel filler bowl drain pipe is free from debris which may block the pipe. If the pipe is blocked, water can not drain from the bowl and can overflow into the fuel tank.

Engine Oil Level

Caution: It is important to check the engine oil level regularly. Running the engine with engine oil below the lower mark or above the upper mark can cause serious engine damage. Check the engine oil level every fourth fuel tank fill or weekly – whichever is the sooner .

Tool Kit
The following emergency items are located in the stowage box tool kit in the luggage compartment.

  • First aid kit (optional).
  • Warning triangle.
  • Tyre repair kit which also holds:
  • Towing eye
  • Funnel for emergency fuel fill
  • Locking wheel bolt key (optional)
