2008 Alfa Romeo 8C Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your Alfa Romeo's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Alfa Romeo? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how light the load might seem. Defying your 8C towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • When should I have my 8C's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 2008 8C’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your Alfa Romeo, so check with your technician first. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
  • Is it possible for transmission fluid to leak from my Alfa Romeo 8C? Yes. Alfa Romeo 8C transmission fluid can leak as time passes, which may lead to transmission problems. Transmission fluid leaks are often caused by worn or damaged transmission components, such as the transmission pan, cooler lines, seals, or housing. An overfilled transmission may also be behind your transmission fluid leak.
