2007 V8 Vantage Coolant Flush

Hi guys,

I have been trying to find how to flush coolant on my 2007 V8V from you tube, this forum, and other forums but not very successful to find any detailed information yet.

Has anyone of you done it before? Could you please share your knowledge from the beginning to the end?

I am also planning to replace a thermostat.

Thank you very much in advance~!!

Best Regards,
Jung

From the workshop manual:

Coolant-Drain/Fill
1. Raise vehicle on ramp.
2. Remove front undertray (see Workshop Manual
procedure 01.02.NB Undertray - Front - Renew).
3. Position suitable container to collect coolant.
4. Remove pressure cap from coolant reservoir.
5. Remove drain plug from radiator, allow coolant to drain.
6. Installation
7. Clean radiator drain plug.
8. Install and tighten drain plug.
9. Remove drain container.
10. Install front undertray (see Workshop Manual procedure
01.02.NB Undertray - Front - Renew).
11. Lower vehicle on ramp.
12. Fill cooling system with specified coolant mix to
maximum level in coolant reservoir.
13. Install and tighten pressure cap.
14. Run engine until normal operating temperature is
reached.
15. Stop engine, allow to cool down.
16. Re-check coolant level, top-up as necessary.

I filled mine with an Airlift system, makes burbing unnecessary. I use Motul Inugel Optimal Ultra coolant. It's formulation matches the recommended Aston coolant.

Thank you for your advice.
I need to find where the drain plugs are first!!

As with most things, this is a subject that's been covered before.
