Aston Martin Frequently Asked Questions

UPDATED 11/16/2015 by Telum01

Many parts and procedures are shared across Aston Martin's model range. Some of them are specific to a particular car or even to a range of years for a given model. While the links below generally state they are for a particular car, they might also apply to others as well. Most of the information posted is based on left-hand drive cars (ie, those found in the North American market). Some of these links direct to Piston Heads, a forum primarily comprised of European members. On that forum the cars will likely be right-hand drive.


General Information

Do you really want to buy an Aston? Thread on owner's problems with their cars:

Parts cross-reference:
There are many parts that come from other marques that are used by Aston Martin. Please post if you can add to this list!

Parts that come from non-Aston cars:
Pre-Garmin navigation - Volvo XC90 (Map DVDs can be purchased from Volvo for significantly less than from AM)
Pre-ECU key fobs - Volvo (under the leather it actually says Volvo)
Underside of wing mirrors - Volvo
Engine Oil - BMW M-cars

Parts that can be replaced with non-Aston parts at a reduced cost:
DBS/DB9/V8V Handbrake pads: Jaguar part# C2C13800
V8V Coolant thermostat: Jaguar part# AJ811788


Maintenance and Repair DIY Guides

Many maintenance and basic repair jobs can be done yourself. The following links will take you to Do-It-Yourself (DIY) guides that walk you through the steps for a given job. It is HIGHLY recommended that you have the workshop manual for your car as well - you can get it from the link listed in the first section of this FAQ. DIY guides are handy because they tend to simplify a job, while a workshop manual can be somewhat confusing. A best practice is to use both to ensure you can understand what you're doing (DIY guide) and have the details to do it right (workshop manual). Most jobs require basic hand tools and garage equipment (jack, jack stands). The main set of tools that might be needed is a full set of Torx bits. These are used extensively throughout Aston Martin's cars. When performing a DIY job, always remember SAFETY FIRST!

Tips and Information

Modifications

A number of owners have modified their Aston Martin and shared the results on our forum. Because of their low volume and rarity, Astons don't have a huge aftermarket support like some other marques. However, options do exist for just about every area of the car.

Modification guru Karl-Franz gathered up his various project threads into one convenient location:

V8V coil issues and misfires:
https://www.6speedonline.com/forums/...ion-coils.html

The exhaust system can be broken down into 4 basic parts: headers, catalytic converters (cats), mid-pipes, and muffler.
Headers: These are the most difficult to install, but can net huge gains on the V12-engined cars. AM's V12 engines have cats built into the headers. Aftermarket headers will eliminate these cats and allow the exhaust to flow much more efficiently. V8 Vantages also see gains from aftermarket headers.
Cats: The most bang for your buck in the exhaust, replacing the OEM cats with high-flow aftermarket units will increase sound as well as horsepower. These are also very easy to install.
Mid-pipes: Situated between the cats and muffler, these are straight-forward and simple. Only a couple options are available in the aftermarket, but they can be replaced with an X-pipe.
Muffler: The OEM muffler on most AM cars is very heavy, switching to an aftermarket will drop weight, and will add sound and maybe a couple horsepower. Some aftermarket exhausts retain exhaust valve functions, others eliminate it. Various sound volumes are available. If you want to keep the OEM exhaust but get more noise, all you have to do is pull fuse 22. This will keep the exhaust valves open at all times.

The V8 Vantage has a lot of oil vapor that gets through the air-oil separator and into the intake manifold. Telum01 designed an oil catch can to solve this problem, which is now sold through VelocityAP.

Tuning

The factory tunes for Aston Martin cars leaves a lot of power left to be tapped. Numerous companies offer plug-and-play tunes that can increase horsepower, torque, and even improve gas mileage. Tunes are often required to prevent error codes and warning lights when performing certain other modifications. Some of those companies are Bamford Rose, OE Tuning, RSC, and VelocityAP.


Clutch

The clutch in the V8 Vantage is considered its weak point. Some people have seen as few as 15-20,000 miles on their clutch. It is an expensive replacement so the topic is worth looking into if you're in the market for an Aston. There are aftermarket heavy-duty options available that can increase the time between replacements.

AM V8 clutch information:
https://www.6speedonline.com/forums/...servation.html
https://www.6speedonline.com/forums/...they-wear.html

Aston's ASM transmission is actually a robotized manual transmission, not an automatic. Each time the car is started, the transmission needs to "learn" where the clutch is so it can properly engage it. This thread covers the procedure:
https://www.6speedonline.com/forums/...procedure.html


Suspension

Fewer options seem to exist for suspension compared to other areas of the car. Aston Martin offers a "standard (or "comfort") suspension as well as a "sport" suspension option. A couple companies offer aftermarket springs and coilovers.


Brakes

The OEM brake pads on the V8V are very, very dusty. Many people replace them with non-OEM pads before required just to eliminate the dust. A popular option for this is the Porterfield RS-4. If you plan to track your car, it'd be worthwhile to look into more aggressive pads.

Aston Martin has a variety of OEM wheels available from the factory. Some of these can be swapped between cars (for example, a couple forum members have put DBS wheels on V8 Vantages). Spacers can be used to give cars a more aggressive stance while retaining the original wheels.

Convertibles

Aston Convertibles (called Roadster or Volante, depending on the car) have a few unique things to consider. First and foremost are issues relating specifically to the roof itself. Two main issues have been encountered: First is that the roof can tear, second is that the convertible roof module (CRM) can go bad and will need to be replaced. Of minor note is that some parts are different for convertibles than they are for the coupes of that same car. Rear springs, for example, are different - likely to account for the extra weight of the convertible.

In general these are good once fixed and won't reoccur, though that repair can be costly.
V8 Vantage timing cover gasket (expensive)
V8 Vantage door lock mechanisms (expensive)
Navigation screen gears (inexpensive)
Fuel vapor recirculation hose (inexpensive)
Leaking windshield wiper fluid reservoir (inexpensive)

Selling your Aston:

So you've decided to sell your pride and joy. Here's a great web page Karl Franz created to sell his 07. This is the way to do it! http://karlfranz.com/vantage4sale/ and here's a thread, look about midway thru for a post by Karl with details on his sales process/strategy https://www.6speedonline.com/forums/...agination.html



I'd like to see others post threads with tips/links to useful info!

I think worth adding this one. Pretty scary for volante users when CRM malfuncitons
https://www.6speedonline.com/forums/...play-dead.html

Also if anyone can find it I could not
but volante have issue with water accumulation in convertible roof motor/cylinder area and leads to malfunction. The way to prevent is to drill couple of holes in floor of this area. could nay of you find exact guide or write it up?

Thanks.
