1988 Alfa Romeo Milano Oil Change

When to Change 1988 Alfa Romeo Milano Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Alfa Romeo Milano’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Alfa Romeo recommends having your 1988 Alfa Romeo Milano’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Outside of Alfa Romeo-recommended oil change intervals, your Milano may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Alfa Romeo recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Alfa Romeo Milano. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 1988 Alfa Romeo Milano?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Alfa Romeo Milano. Alfa Romeo has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 1988 Milano. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, regulate engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. In an oil change service, an auto technician will change your Milano’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off important fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving preferences, and the number of miles on your odometer.

1988 Alfa Romeo Milano Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Alfa Romeo Milano motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Alfa Romeo Milano engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Alfa Romeo Milano oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Alfa Romeo Milano spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
