1993 Alfa Romeo 164 Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Tune Into Your Alfa Romeo 164

Is your engine overdue for a tune-up? If you're the type of driver who waits for something to go wrong with your vehicle, it could be time for a new way of doing things, especially if you want your 1993 Alfa Romeo 164’s engine to last for a long time. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your 164’s engine. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, which can lead to lower emission levels and better fuel economy. When you get routine engine tune-ups based on Alfa Romeo's recommendations, you invest in your 164's long-term health and engine performance.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Alfa Romeo 164

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Alfa Romeo 164 engine tune-up services. One option is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. The standard Firestone Tune-Up includes new spark plugs (and installation!), a thorough inspection of engine components, and a lifetime parts warranty*. Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your 164. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air filter. Our third service is a thorough cleaning of the fuel system. During this type of tune-up, we use a three-step process to get rid of harmful varnish, dirt, and carbon deposit buildup in your 164’s fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Consider this when choosing a tune-up service for your 164: your vehicle’s maintenance record and mileage can determine which service is best. A one-size-fits-all engine tune-up procedure doesn’t necessarily exist. Talk to a technician about your driving style, mileage, and service history to learn more about your vehicle's specific needs.

1993 Alfa Romeo 164 Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • What happens if my Alfa Romeo 164 spark plugs fail? Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so. Without the spark of electricity created by spark plugs, your engine doesn’t have the combustion it needs to start — which could leave you stranded on the road. Always replace your spark plugs on time based on Alfa Romeo’s recommendations.
  • What does a puddle underneath my Alfa Romeo 164 mean? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Alfa Romeo 164. It could signal a coolant leak, brake fluid leak, or an oil leak. Let any one of these leaks linger and it could cause engine damage.
  • Are hard starts and stops bad for my Alfa Romeo 164 engine? You can make your driving habits more engine-friendly. Hard starts and stops can increase the stress on engine parts, especially over many years. Boost your fuel economy and care for your engine by using gradual, smooth starts and stops instead.
