Alfa Romeo recommends having your 1994 Alfa Romeo 164’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your 164 in the above table. Outside of Alfa Romeo-recommended oil change intervals, your 164 may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust.

1994 Alfa Romeo 164 Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Alfa Romeo 164 engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Alfa Romeo 164 engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my 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. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Alfa Romeo exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
