What’s the Importance of Your 1990 Spider’s Transmission?

The transmission delivers power from the motor to your wheels so that you can drive at your desired speed. Because your transmission is responsible for converting the right amount of power into the right amount of speed, a small transmission issue can put a big dent in your Spider’s performance. It's a type of car problem that’s not hard to notice. Alfa Romeo Spider transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding or jumping during acceleration, the car shaking at any speed, or a burning smell or whistling sounds coming from under the hood. If you ignore Alfa Romeo Spider transmission issues you might notice your fuel economy decrease or find that you can't drive your Spider at all.

1990 Alfa Romeo Spider Transmission Q&A

  • Is it bad to ride the brakes in your Alfa Romeo? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Alfa Romeo? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small it is. Defying your Spider towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • Does my Spider's transmission fluid need to be inspected? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1990 Spider’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Alfa Romeo. Leaks or low transmission fluid are easy to spot and affordable to repair.
  • Can my Alfa Romeo Spider leak transmission fluid? Over time, transmission fluid can leak from your Alfa Romeo Spider, potentially causing transmission problems. A transmission fluid leak may be caused by a damaged transmission pan, faulty transmission cooler lines, worn-out seals, a cracked transmission housing, or an overfilled transmission.
  • Who fixes Alfa Romeo Spider transmission leaks? When your Spider transmission is acting up, Firestone Complete Auto Care is here to help. Book an appointment today for transmission system diagnostics and repairs.
  • Can I still drive my Alfa Romeo Spider if it has a transmission fluid leak? Driving your Spider with a transmission fluid leak is highly discouraged. Transmission fluid is vital to the smooth operation of your transmission system, and a leak can put the entire system at risk. A transmission fluid leak may lead to decreased performance, overheating, and possibly even transmission failure.
