What is the recommended maintenance schedule for the 1985 Alfa Romeo GTV-6?
You want your Alfa Romeo GTV-6 to last as long as possible. With proactive maintenance, your GTV-6 has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. But how do you know what service to get and when? It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine GTV-6 maintenance. Just follow your 1985 Alfa Romeo GTV-6 maintenance schedule!
The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Alfa Romeo, your vehicle manufacturer. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your GTV-6 running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and prevent common 1985 Alfa Romeo GTV-6 problems.
Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1985 Alfa Romeo GTV-6 and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your GTV-6. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.
Could your 1985 Alfa Romeo GTV-6 be ready for a new battery? If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Alfa Romeo GTV-6 battery, and so can frequent short drives. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. 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 won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.
In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1985 Alfa Romeo GTV-6 engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1985 GTV-6. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1985 Alfa Romeo GTV-6.
