1989 Alfa Romeo Spider Transmission Q&A

  • What happens if I "ride" my Alfa Romeo's brakes? Keeping your foot on the brake pedal or lightly but consistently pushing it down can lead to transmission problems. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Alfa Romeo Spider? Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small it is. Defying your Spider towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Check your owner's manual to ensure you have the proper towing setup and aren't going over your towing capacity.
  • When should I have my Spider's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Caring for your Alfa Romeo Spider’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. Some technicians would say that between 30,000 and 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your Alfa Romeo's transmission fluid checked and replaced, but that timeline can vary depending on how your vehicle is used and your manufacturer’s recommendations. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
