Need more info about 1985 Alfa Romeo Spider oil changes? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”
Alfa Romeo recommends changing your 1985 Spider’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Spider may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, 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, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Alfa Romeo Spider. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.
Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 1985 Alfa Romeo Spider motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Alfa Romeo has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the ideal engine oil for your 1985 Spider. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, keep the engine cool, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. During your oil change service, one of our techs will change your Spider’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, check all of your other filters, refill vital car fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your Spider by taking into account your driving preferences, and odometer.
