2018 Alfa Romeo 4C Oil Change

How Often to Get 2018 Alfa Romeo 4C Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Alfa Romeo 4C’s oil changed? Look no further than 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 2018 4C’s oil at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your 4C in the above table. Outside of Alfa Romeo-recommended oil change intervals, your 4C may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Alfa Romeo recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm 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 you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 2018 Alfa Romeo 4C motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Alfa Romeo has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 2018 4C. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, maintain proper engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During an oil change, an auto technician will change your 4C’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off important 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 habits, and mileage.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2018 Alfa Romeo 4C

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Alfa Romeo 4C? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your 4C’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Alfa Romeo 4C oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. 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 4C spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
