Fluid Checks and Capacities

Engine Oil Level

Warning: Engine oil or components may be hot and could cause severe burns.

Caution: Running the engine with engine oil below the lower mark or above the upper mark can cause serious engine damage.

Caution: This vehicle’s warranty may be invalidated if damage is caused by the use of incorrect engine oil. Low quality or obsolete oils do NOT give the protection required by modern, high-performance engines.

Caution: Failure to use engine oil that meets the required specification can cause excessive engine wear, a build up of sludge and deposits, and increased pollution. It could also lead to engine failure (Refer to ’Fluid Specifications’, page 11.12).

Engine Oil Level Sensing
This vehicle has an electronic engine Oil Level Sensing (OLS) system which records the engine oil level every vehicle start if the vehicle has been left for 4 or more hours, if the vehicle is on level ground, and if it is within a pre-set oil temperature range.

Caution:
Running the engine with engine oil below the minimum level can cause serious engine damage. The system may not record an oil level if the engine oil temperature is low. If the engine oil level is approaching the minimum mark, a message will be shown in the instrument cluster along with a warning symbol. A code will also be stored in the engine management system. The engine oil level should be checked and filled to the required level engine oil as soon as possible. The message will clear when the oil level is filled with a least 1 liter to the required level and the OLS system has performed a valid check of the oil level.

Engine Oil Level CheckAston Martin DBX 2021 Bonnet Release User Manual 04

  1. Make sure the vehicle is on level ground.
  2. Run the engine until it reaches normal operating temperature.
  3. Navigate to Service and then Oil Level Check in the instrument cluster menu.
  4. If more oil is required, shut off the engine, remove the engine oil filler cap and top up with the recommended engine oil.
    For the correct engine oil (Refer to ’Fluid Specifications’, page 11.12).
  5. Wait for approximately two minutes for the engine oil to settle, then repeat step 3. Add engine oil if required. Do not overfill.
  6. Securely fit the engine oil filler cap.

Engine Coolant Level

Warning:
Do not remove the filler cap until the coolant system has cooled. Scalding can be caused by escaping steam or coolant. Use a cloth or glove to protect hands and protect face and arms adequately. The engine coolant reservoir is found under the right side leaf screen in the engine bay. To top up the coolant:

  1. Remove the fastener (A).

  3. Remove the reservoir cap to check the coolant level. The correct coolant level is to the top of the reservoir tank.
  4. Make sure that the reservoir cap is secure after topping up.
  5. Caution: Do not over tighten the reservoir cap. This can cause damage to the reservoir cap or the thread for the reservoir tank.
  6. Put the leaf screen panel back into position.
  7. Install the fastener.

Brake Fluid Level

Warning:
Do not drive the vehicle if the brake fluid level is below the minimum mark.

Caution:
Make sure that the brake fluid does not spill onto the vehicle. The paint can be serious damage by brake fluid. If a spillage does occur, immediately flush any brake fluid with clean, fresh water and then wipe with a clean damp cloth.
The brake fluid reservoir is found under the driver’s side leaf screen in the engine bay. To check and top up the brake fluid:

Washers and Wipers

Windscreen Wash Fluid
To refill the washer fluid, open the washer fluid reservoir cap (A) and top up as required. In winter, to prevent the windscreen wash fluid freezing, increase the fluid concentration (refer to the manufacturer’s recommendations on the windscreen wash fluid container).Aston Martin DBX 2021 Bonnet Release User Manual 11

When the level of windscreen wash fluid is low an information message will show in the message center and the amber warning symbol will come ON. Local or state regulations may restrict the use of volatile organic compounds (VOCs), which are commonly used as antifreeze agents in windscreen washer fluid. A windscreen washer fluid with limited VOC content should be used only if it provides adequate freeze resistance for all regions and climates in which the vehicle will be operated.

Wiper Blade Replacement
