Engine Tune-Up Service for Your 1990 Alfa Romeo Spider

Tune Into Your Alfa Romeo Spider

Is it time for an engine tune-up? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, it could be time for a new way of doing things, especially if you want your 1990 Alfa Romeo Spider’s engine to last for a long time. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your Spider’s engine. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, which can mean better fuel economy (a win for you) and lower emissions (a win for the environment). When you get routine engine tune-ups based on Alfa Romeo's recommendations, you can rest assured you’re investing in your Spider’s long-term engine performance.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Alfa Romeo Spider

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Alfa Romeo Spider engine tune-up services. One option is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. This includes the installation of new spark plugs and a visual inspection of your engine’s components, plus a lifetime warranty on parts*. Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your Spider. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air filter. Our third service is a thorough cleaning of the fuel system. During this type of tune-up, we use a three-step process to get rid of harmful varnish, dirt, and carbon deposit buildup in your Spider’s fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Keep in mind that your Spider's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs. If you’re not sure what services are the best fit for your car, let us help! Talk to a technician about your driving style, mileage, and service history to learn more about your vehicle's specific needs.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 1990 Alfa Romeo Spiders

  • When should Alfa Romeo Spider spark plugs be replaced? When it’s time to replace the spark plugs, don’t delay. These small (but vital!) parts provide the electric spark that your car needs in order to start, and old spark plugs can prevent your car from starting at all. Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so.
  • What should I do if I see leaks under my Spider? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Alfa Romeo Spider. It could signal a coolant leak, brake fluid leak, or an oil leak. Let any one of these leaks linger and it could cause engine damage.
  • Are some driving habits better for my Alfa Romeo Spider engine than others? Hard starts and stops put extra wear and tear on engine components. Smooth, gradual starts and stops, on the other hand, are a great way to help your engine run better. They can also help maximize your fuel economy.
