Questions About 1986 Alfa Romeo GTV-6’s Transmission

  • 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. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Alfa Romeo? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small it is. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • How often does my GTV-6 transmission fluid need to be checked? Maintaining your Alfa Romeo GTV-6 transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Alfa Romeo's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
  • Can transmission fluid leak from my Alfa Romeo GTV-6? Yes. Alfa Romeo GTV-6 transmission fluid can leak over time and potentially cause transmission issues.
