1991 Alfa Romeo 164 Transmission Q&A

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Alfa Romeo? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Alfa Romeo tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small it is. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your 164’s towing capacity. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • Does my 164's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1991 164’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Alfa Romeo. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
  • Can my Alfa Romeo 164 leak transmission fluid? Yes, your Alfa Romeo 164 can develop a transmission fluid leak. As your 164 ages, parts of the transmission system might wear out or break down, leading to a leak and possible transmission issues.
