When to Change 1995 Alfa Romeo 164 Engine Oil

Need more info about 1995 Alfa Romeo 164 oil changes? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Alfa Romeo recommends changing your 1995 164’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your 164 may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, 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, frequent dusty roads, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Alfa Romeo 164. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

What Type of Oil Does My Alfa Romeo 164 Need?

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 recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the ideal engine oil for your 1995 164. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, keep the engine cool, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During your oil change service, an auto technician will change your 164’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, check all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving style, and odometer.

1995 Alfa Romeo 164 Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Alfa Romeo 164 engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Alfa Romeo 164 engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Alfa Romeo oil on my own? 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 changed professionally can not only reduce 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 exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
