1988 Alfa Romeo Spider Drivetrain Service

Your Spider drivetrain transfers power from your engine to the wheels. It runs the full length of your Alfa Romeo, from the axles to the transmission.

When you tune into you 1988 Alfa Romeo Spider drivetrain, you help maintain your vehicle’s overall power. You can help prevent repairs by checking and changing differential fluids, and lubricating bearings and gears according to Alfa Romeo's recommendations.
