Questions About 1986 Alfa Romeo GTV-6 Engines

  • Why does my GTV-6’s check engine light come on when I start it? Generally, your check engine light turning on upon ignition is not a bad thing. This is a sign that your vehicle is testing its circuits. The light should turn off in a bit, but come see us if it doesn't.
  • Are Alfa Romeo GTV-6 engine noises bad? Strange under-the-hood noises can point to problems within your Alfa Romeo GTV-6 engine. Knocking or tapping could be a symptom of low oil. A high-pitched whistle could signal an intake leak or misaligned belt. Squealing can indicate a loose fan belt, and grinding might be coming from the brakes, not the engine.
  • What could damage my Alfa Romeo GTV-6 engine? Certain driving habits can damage your engine and should be avoided. These habits include 'running on fumes,' revving your engine while the vehicle is in Park, or pushing 'the pedal to the metal' before the engine has warmed up. Help sustain your engine’s performance and efficiency by staying miles away from these bad driving practices.
  • Is it okay to put water in my Alfa Romeo GTV-6 radiator? While it’s not recommended, you can use water in your GTV-6 radiator in emergencies.
