How Often to Get 1985 Alfa Romeo GTV-6 Oil Changes

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1985 Alfa Romeo GTV-6? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than 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 1985 Alfa Romeo GTV-6’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. 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 notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Alfa Romeo recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Alfa Romeo GTV-6. 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’s the Right Type of Oil for 1985 Alfa Romeo GTV-6?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Alfa Romeo GTV-6.

Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, keep the engine cool, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During an oil change, a technician will change your GTV-6's oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving habits, and mileage.

1985 Alfa Romeo GTV-6 Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Alfa Romeo GTV-6 motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates 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.
  • 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 changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle 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. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
