1984 Alfa Romeo GTV-6 Oil Change Service

When to Change 1984 Alfa Romeo GTV-6 Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Alfa Romeo GTV-6’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. 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 1984 Alfa Romeo GTV-6’s motor oil changed 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 knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Alfa Romeo if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Alfa Romeo GTV-6. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

1984 Alfa Romeo GTV-6 Oil Change Questions

  • 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, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Alfa Romeo GTV-6 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 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 GTV-6 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? 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, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
