1987 Alfa Romeo Spider Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Tune-Ups to Help Your Alfa Romeo Spider Run Better

Is it tune-up time? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, now is the time to work on that habit, especially if you want your 1987 Alfa Romeo Spider’s engine to last for a long time. Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your Spider’s power on the road. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, so you can enjoy improved fuel economy and lower emissions. When you take your car for regular engine tune-ups as recommended by Alfa Romeo, you can rest assured you’re investing in your Spider’s long-term engine performance.

Engine Tune-Up for Alfa Romeo Spider

Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to Alfa Romeo Spider engine tune-up services. The standard Firestone Tune-Up is one service option. The standard Firestone Tune-Up includes new spark plugs (and installation!), a thorough inspection of engine components, and a lifetime parts warranty*. Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your Spider. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air filter. Our third service is a thorough cleaning of the fuel system. During this type of tune-up, we use a three-step process to get rid of harmful varnish, dirt, and carbon deposit buildup in your Spider’s fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Keep in mind that your Spider's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs. A one-size-fits-all engine tune-up procedure doesn’t necessarily exist. Chat with a Firestone technician before you jump into a specific service to ensure your engine tune-up money is well-spent.

Where to Get a Alfa Romeo Spider Tune-Up

If you’re looking for 1987 Spider engine tune-up services, head to Firestone Complete Auto Care. Consult your vehicle’s recommended service schedule from Alfa Romeo, or make a service appointment if you notice any of these symptoms from your engine: shaking while the engine is idling, poor fuel economy, knocking noises in the engine, or a lit up check engine light on your dashboard.

1987 Alfa Romeo Spider Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • Will it hurt my Alfa Romeo Spider to drive with old spark plugs? Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so. Spark plugs are small but mighty. The spark of electricity that the plug emits across a small gap creates the ignition for the combustion needed to start your car. Without that spark, your car won't start.
  • What do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my Alfa Romeo Spider? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Alfa Romeo Spider. It could signal a coolant leak, brake fluid leak, or an oil leak. Let any one of these leaks linger and it could cause engine damage.
  • Are some driving habits better for my Alfa Romeo Spider engine than others? Hard stops and starts can lead to premature wear on your engine’s components. Lighten up that lead foot and opt for steady, fluid starts and stops instead. Your engine (and your passengers!) will thank you.
