How Often to Change 1993 Alfa Romeo 164 Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Alfa Romeo 164’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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.

Your 1993 164’s oil should be changed according to Alfa Romeo’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your 164 may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Alfa Romeo if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Alfa Romeo 164. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Alfa Romeo 164?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Alfa Romeo 164. Alfa Romeo has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 1993 164. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, regulate engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. In an oil change service, one of our techs will change your 164’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, refill vital car fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your 164 by taking into account your driving preferences, weather and road conditions,

1993 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 you're low or out of oil, 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. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Alfa Romeo 164 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
