When to Change 1991 Alfa Romeo Spider Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Alfa Romeo Spider’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know all about motor oil, too. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 1991 Spider’s oil should be changed according to Alfa Romeo’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your Spider in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Spider may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Alfa Romeo recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, go off-roading a lot, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Alfa Romeo Spider. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What Type of Oil Does My Alfa Romeo Spider Need?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 1991 Alfa Romeo Spider motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Alfa Romeo has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 1991 Spider. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During an oil change, an auto technician will change your Spider’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, check all of your other filters, refill vital car fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Spider by considering your driving preferences, weather and road conditions,

1991 Alfa Romeo Spider Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Alfa Romeo Spider engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Alfa Romeo Spider engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Alfa Romeo Spider oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Alfa Romeo exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
