Question about Aston Martin DB7

1 Answer

Not Starting I have a 1998 Aston Martin DB7 Volante, with 35,000 miles on it. Sometimes this car will not turn-over, all the lights are on, power windows, radio, horn etc.. functioning, but no kick from the starter. This happens most often, after the car has been out for a run and is hot. If I leave it sit for an hour, and return to it, it usually starts-up again without difficulty. Yesterday, I was driving for 1 hour, with top down, stopped for 10 minutes, and the car would not turn-over again. Also the convertible top would not close. I left it for 2 hours, returned, and it started without issue, the top also worked again. What is causing this malfunction? I have not been using the remote locking/alarm unit, in case there was an issue with that. Battery appears to be fine.

No, unless you go to the dealer. you can usually, with most car manufacturers, order a new key just provide the VIN and whatever else they ask you for

Its because that the Freon gas is over, you need to re-fill.

All engine parts for the 6 cyl are Jaguar 3.2 parts, so any XJ6 or XJS parts. Not to mention the fact that they are 10% of the price! Ditto suspension parts. If anyone tells you otherwise, ignore them. I worked on that engine for many years.

Check the seals around the headlamp assembly and make sure the harness is secured. You may want to remove the harness and let the cavity dry out.

Hi, what does the scheduled 60 000 miles service (or repairs) include for an Aston Martin DB7, 6L year 2000? I'm considering buying this model which has driven 65 000 miles and I'm not sure what...


Usually, a big service would include a cam-belt change and retiming, brake fluid top up, coolant level check, new oil filter, oil change, new pollen filter, new air filters and a general inspection. This should be no different for an Aston Martin :)
