2016 Alfa Romeo 4C Oil Change

When to Change 2016 Alfa Romeo 4C Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2016 Alfa Romeo 4C? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Alfa Romeo recommends changing your 2016 4C’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your 4C may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Alfa Romeo recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Alfa Romeo 4C. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What Type of Oil Does My Alfa Romeo 4C 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 4C. Alfa Romeo has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best oil for 2016 Alfa Romeo 4C vehicles. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, 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 4C’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your 4C by considering your driving habits, and mileage.

2016 Alfa Romeo 4C Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Alfa Romeo 4C motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Alfa Romeo 4C engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Alfa Romeo 4C 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. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Alfa Romeo 4C exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
