Questions About 1984 Alfa Romeo Spider’s Transmission

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Alfa Romeo? 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 volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • When should I have my Spider's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1984 Spider’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Alfa Romeo. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
  • Can my Alfa Romeo Spider leak transmission fluid? Yes. Alfa Romeo Spider transmission fluid can leak over time and potentially cause transmission issues. Worn or damaged seals, a loose or damaged transmission pan, a cracked transmission housing, faulty transmission cooler lines, or an overfilled transmission could cause transmission fluid leaks.
