That's clever but could do more harm than good if the manufacturer didn't set it like that. Zero to rev limiter from stone coldThe Aston is accelerator fully depressed. There are a few other Manufacturers that do this too. Cannot remember which though. I might try it later.
Thanks again. I'm only really doing it because Aston recommends it on their cars after a long period of rest. I will try it now. Haven't started the car since AprilHmm, there are.
Well F14 under the bonnet is fuel pump relay but F63 in the boot is the actual pumps which is probably simpler.
But really? Is it worth it? How much wear do you think you're going to save by turning it on the starter and building pressure rather than turning it by burning fuel to build pressure?
You have to wonder if that was an engineer or a marketeer that made that recommendation.....Thanks again. I'm only really doing it because Aston recommends it on their cars after a long period of rest. I will try it now. Haven't started the car since April
Well that's a win in anyone's bookI watched a video from Bamford Rose, the Aston Martin specialist, in which they said that they did not recommend starting a car that had been sitting for a while without using this procedure.
Maybe I was being over cautious ( or just bored). Maybe there is a difference between the Aston V8s and V12s when compared to the Maserati V8?
Either way, it worked and I have just been for a drive without the engine exploding!
