2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia Oil Change

When to Change 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia Engine Oil

Need more info about 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia oil changes? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know the ins and outs of 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.”

Alfa Romeo recommends having your 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your Giulia may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear engine knocking, 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, frequent dusty roads, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Alfa Romeo Giulia. 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.

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia motor oil: either synthetic or conventional.

You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Giulia by considering your driving style, and the number of miles on your odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia

  • What can low oil do to my Alfa Romeo Giulia engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Alfa Romeo Giulia engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Alfa Romeo oil on my own? 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. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Alfa Romeo exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
