Oil Change Q&A for Your 1992 Alfa Romeo 164

  • Should I check my Alfa Romeo 164 motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Alfa Romeo 164 engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Alfa Romeo 164 oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Alfa Romeo 164 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
