Alfa Romeo recommends changing your 1983 GTV-6’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your GTV-6 may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess vehicle exhaust.

More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Alfa Romeo GTV-6. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1983 Alfa Romeo GTV-6

  • What can low oil do to my Alfa Romeo GTV-6 engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Alfa Romeo GTV-6 engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Alfa Romeo GTV-6 oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Alfa Romeo exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
