1985 Alfa Romeo Spider Questions & Answers

  • What happens when you "ride" your Alfa Romeo's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Alfa Romeo? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small it is. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Spider’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Spider is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my Spider's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1985 Spider’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your Alfa Romeo, so check with your technician first. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
