1987 Alfa Romeo Spider Questions & Answers

  • 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. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Alfa Romeo? Think twice before volunteering to tow a moving trailer, no matter how small. Defying your Spider towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. 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.
  • How often does my Spider transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your Alfa Romeo Spider’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it 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. The good news is that transmission fluid leaks are affordable to repair and easy to spot.
  • Is it possible for transmission fluid to leak from my Alfa Romeo Spider? 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.

  • Can I still drive my Alfa Romeo Spider if it has a transmission fluid leak? Driving your Spider with a transmission fluid leak is highly discouraged. Transmission fluid is vital to the smooth operation of your transmission system, and a leak can put the entire system at risk. A transmission fluid leak may lead to decreased performance, overheating, and possibly even transmission failure.
