2017 Alfa Romeo 4C Oil Change Service

How Often to Get 2017 Alfa Romeo 4C Oil Changes

Need more info about 2017 Alfa Romeo 4C oil changes? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about motor oil, too. 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.”

Your 2017 4C’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. 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 an unusual amount of 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 go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Alfa Romeo 4C. 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 Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Alfa Romeo 4C?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2017 Alfa Romeo 4C motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Alfa Romeo has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 2017 4C.

During your oil change service, one of our techs will change your 4C’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, check all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your 4C by considering your driving habits, and mileage.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2017 Alfa Romeo 4C

  • Should I check my Alfa Romeo 4C motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your Alfa Romeo 4C engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Alfa Romeo 4C oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Alfa Romeo exhaust smoke gray or blue? 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, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
