Your Guide to 1986 Alfa Romeo GTV-6 Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Alfa Romeo GTV-6 and it'll take care of you. With proactive maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your GTV-6. But how do you know what service to get and when? Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your GTV-6, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1986 Alfa Romeo GTV-6!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Alfa Romeo themselves. 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 tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your GTV-6 running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1986 Alfa Romeo GTV-6 problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Alfa Romeo GTV-6 Running Newer, Longer

Bring your 1986 Alfa Romeo GTV-6 to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. 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 1986 Alfa Romeo GTV-6 be ready for a new battery? In general, car batteries only last three to 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. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your GTV-6 stranded. Your Alfa Romeo GTV-6 won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1986 Alfa Romeo GTV-6 engine. To learn how often Alfa Romeo recommends you have the oil changed in your 1986 GTV-6, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1986 Alfa Romeo GTV-6.

Maintaining your Alfa Romeo GTV-6 steering and suspension system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle.
