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 2008 8C’s oil at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your 8C in the above table. No matter the mileage, your 8C may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Alfa Romeo recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Alfa Romeo 8C. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

2008 Alfa Romeo 8C Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Alfa Romeo 8C? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Alfa Romeo 8C engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Alfa Romeo 8C oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. 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? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
