1992 Alfa Romeo 164 Maintenance Schedule

When should you have your 1992 Alfa Romeo 164 suspension system inspected or repaired?

Is It Time For 1992 Alfa Romeo 164 Suspension Service?

During the first few years you had your 1992 Alfa Romeo 164, the ride was probably so smooth that you didn’t even think about it! Now, however, things are starting to feel a little rough. Perhaps your 164 feels bouncy, pulls to one side, or makes an unusual noise when going over a speed bump. The first sign of trouble is the best time to bring your 1992 Alfa Romeo 164 in for steering and suspension services. We'll figure out what needs to be taken care of, if anything.

The technicians at Firestone Complete Auto Care will start with a suspension inspection to diagnose your vehicle. We’ll take a look at the front and rear end suspension, shock dampeners, coil springs, struts, bushings, CV joints and axles, chassis, wheel hub bearings, and power steering system parts. We'll get to the root of the problem and, if steering and suspension service is needed, we'll explain all of your options and the potential cost. If your 164 steering or suspension system requires replacement parts, we may also recommend an alignment. Replacing these parts can change the existing ride height and wheel angles.

Shock & Strut Replacements for Your Alfa Romeo 164

Shocks and struts are important parts of your 1992 Alfa Romeo 164 suspension system. They help you stay in control as your car handles bumpy roads and uneven terrain. While the struts support the structure of the suspension, the shocks keep the car from bouncing too much. These components work together to reduce vibration and maintain your car’s height. But there’s no set schedule for getting your 1992 Alfa Romeo 164’s shocks and struts replaced since many things can influence the wear rate and severity of the wear. A bouncy ride, swaying from side to side, or rocking back and forth could all be signs of worn Alfa Romeo 164 shocks and struts. It’s a smart move to get your 164’s shocks and struts regularly inspected by a trusted technician. Schedule an appointment online and visit your local Firestone Complete Auto Care.

1992 164 Steering & Suspension Q&A

  • Does treadwear and tire pressure impact my 164's steering and suspension? Keeping your tires properly inflated can help reduce strain on the suspension, and also alert you to the need for new tires. A faltering steering and suspension system could lead to uneven tire wear.
  • Why should my Alfa Romeo 164 get regular tire rotations and wheel alignments? Regularly rotate tires and adjust wheel alignment. Alignment and rotation seem like minor services, but they have a major impact on your vehicle. Such services help ensure that the right amount of pressure is being applied to your tires and that the tires connect with the road how Alfa Romeo intended.
  • Does my Alfa Romeo 164 power steering fluid need to be checked? Get your power steering fluid check out when you get an oil change or every couple of months. If your power steering fluid needs to be filled, we can fill it per Alfa Romeo's recommendations to help ensure proper suspension operation.
