Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1991 Alfa Romeo 164? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Alfa Romeo recommends having your 1991 Alfa Romeo 164’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your 164 may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Alfa Romeo recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Alfa Romeo 164. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

1991 Alfa Romeo 164 Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Alfa Romeo 164 motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Alfa Romeo 164 engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Alfa Romeo oil on my own? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Alfa Romeo 164 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
