Maintenance for Your 1984 Alfa Romeo GTV-6

How often should I service my 1984 Alfa Romeo GTV-6?

Here’s Why 1984 Alfa Romeo GTV-6 Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Alfa Romeo GTV-6 to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, your GTV-6 could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. There's no need to guess when it's time to get GTV-6 maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1984 Alfa Romeo GTV-6!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Alfa Romeo, your vehicle manufacturer. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your GTV-6's life, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1984 Alfa Romeo GTV-6 problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Alfa Romeo GTV-6 Maintenance Needs

Bring your 1984 Alfa Romeo GTV-6 to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your GTV-6’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1984 Alfa Romeo GTV-6. In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your GTV-6 may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Alfa Romeo GTV-6 battery, and so can frequent short drives. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Alfa Romeo GTV-6 could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can help your 1984 Alfa Romeo GTV-6's engine run smoother. See Alfa Romeo's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1984 GTV-6 in the chart at the top of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1984 Alfa Romeo GTV-6.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Alfa Romeo GTV-6 can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, perform Alfa Romeo GTV-6 suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Components within your Alfa Romeo GTV-6's steering system require regular maintenance.

Without routine Alfa Romeo GTV-6 maintenance, you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Alfa Romeo GTV-6 engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Need a new Alfa Romeo GTV-6 radiator? We’ve got your back. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We'll fix it.
