Question about Air Intake & Fuel Delivery for Aston Martin DB7

2 Answers

The car is a 1996 DB7 with only 37500 miles on the clock. Recently had a big service, The problem is sometimes the car loses power and will not rev above 3000 rpm. If I take it up to 3000 rpm whilst the car is stationery the engine hunts revs between 2600 - 3000. Another time I can get in the car and it is fine. My thoughts are with fuel i.e pump or possibly filter. The car was low on fuel recently but not out of fuel.

I'd start with fuel filter and run a good fuel system cleaner through it. And avoid running fuel too low, fuel acts as a coolant for electric fuel pump
