2018 Alfa Romeo Giulia Oil Change Service

How Often to Change 2018 Alfa Romeo Giulia Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2018 Alfa Romeo Giulia? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Alfa Romeo recommends having your 2018 Alfa Romeo Giulia’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your Giulia may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, 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, frequent dusty roads, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm 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.

What Type of Oil Does My Alfa Romeo Giulia Need?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2018 Alfa Romeo Giulia motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Alfa Romeo has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 2018 Giulia. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, maintain proper engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During an oil change, a technician will change your Giulia's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, check all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Giulia by considering your driving style, and mileage.

2018 Alfa Romeo Giulia Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Alfa Romeo Giulia motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Giulia’s engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Alfa Romeo Giulia oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Alfa Romeo Giulia exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
