Just follow your 1989 Alfa Romeo Spider maintenance schedule!

The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Alfa Romeo, your vehicle manufacturer. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Spider perform better, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1989 Alfa Romeo Spider problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Alfa Romeo Spider Running Newer, Longer

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1989 Alfa Romeo Spider and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your Spider’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1989 Alfa Romeo Spider. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your Spider may need a replacement battery sooner. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Alfa Romeo Spider battery. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Spider stranded. Your Alfa Romeo Spider could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1989 Alfa Romeo Spider running newer, longer. To learn how often Alfa Romeo recommends you have the oil changed in your 1989 Spider, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1989 Alfa Romeo Spider.

Routine upkeep for your Alfa Romeo Spider suspension and steering system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, perform Alfa Romeo Spider suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Alfa Romeo Spider's steering and suspension system.

If you skip recommended Alfa Romeo Spider services, you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C. Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Alfa Romeo Spider engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning.
