1985 Alfa Romeo GTV-6 Tune-Up & Engine Service

Tune-Ups to Help Your Alfa Romeo GTV-6 Run Better

Is it time for an engine tune-up? If you usually wait until your car has an issue to take it in for service, it might be time to change your ways, particularly if you want to keep your 1985 Alfa Romeo GTV-6 in tip-top shape. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your GTV-6. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, so you can enjoy improved fuel economy and lower emissions. When you follow the guidelines specified by Alfa Romeo for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you invest in your GTV-6's long-term health and engine performance.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Alfa Romeo GTV-6

Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to Alfa Romeo GTV-6 engine tune-up services. The first is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. This includes the installation of new spark plugs and a visual inspection of your engine’s components, plus a lifetime warranty on parts*. Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your GTV-6. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air filter. Our third service is a thorough cleaning of the fuel system. During this type of tune-up, we use a three-step process to get rid of harmful varnish, dirt, and carbon deposit buildup in your GTV-6’s fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Keep in mind that your GTV-6's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs. If you’re not sure what services are the best fit for your car, let us help! Talk to a technician about your driving style, mileage, and service history to learn more about your vehicle's specific needs.

Questions About 1985 Alfa Romeo GTV-6 Engine Tune-Ups

  • Will it hurt my Alfa Romeo GTV-6 to drive with old spark plugs? Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so. Without the spark of electricity created by spark plugs, your engine doesn’t have the combustion it needs to start — which could leave you stranded on the road. Always replace your spark plugs on time based on Alfa Romeo’s recommendations.
  • What should I do if I see leaks under my GTV-6? Puddles could indicate an oil leak, coolant leak, or brake fluid leak– all of which can critically hurt your engine. Have your engine inspected as soon as you spot a pool of liquid in your usual parking spot.
  • Are some driving habits better for my Alfa Romeo GTV-6 engine than others? Hard starts and stops put extra wear and tear on engine components. Smooth, gradual starts and stops, on the other hand, are a great way to help your engine run better. They can also help maximize your fuel economy.
