What to Know About 1990 Alfa Romeo Spider Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Alfa Romeo Spider, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With proactive maintenance, your Spider could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine Spider maintenance. Just follow your 1990 Alfa Romeo Spider maintenance schedule!

Alfa Romeo knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your Spider perform better, keep you safer on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 1990 Alfa Romeo Spider problems later.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Alfa Romeo Spider

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1990 Alfa Romeo Spider for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment 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. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your Spider. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1990 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. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Alfa Romeo Spider battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your Spider stranded. Your Alfa Romeo Spider won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1990 Alfa Romeo Spider engine. To learn how often Alfa Romeo recommends you have the oil changed in your 1990 Spider, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1990 Alfa Romeo Spider? We can help with that, too!
