Overview of Essential Alfa Romeo Spider Maintenance Needs

Bring your 1985 Alfa Romeo Spider to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your Spider's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1985 Alfa Romeo Spider? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Alfa Romeo Spider battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Spider stranded. Your Alfa Romeo Spider won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can help your 1985 Alfa Romeo Spider's engine run smoother. To learn how often Alfa Romeo recommends you have the oil changed in your 1985 Spider, 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. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1985 Alfa Romeo Spider.

  • When should I have Alfa Romeo Spider alignment checked? Watch out for pothole damage. If your 1985 Spider is pulling to one side or the other, your tires or suspension system could be calling out for help.
  • When does my Alfa Romeo Spider need high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Alfa Romeo Spider engines.
  •  Why are my Alfa Romeo dashboard lights on? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Alfa Romeo Spider, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
