1985 Alfa Romeo GTV-6 Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your Alfa Romeo's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Alfa Romeo tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small it is. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your GTV-6’s towing capacity. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • Does my GTV-6's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Caring for your Alfa Romeo GTV-6’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Alfa Romeo. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
