1991 Alfa Romeo Spider Questions & Answers

  • What happens when you "ride" your Alfa Romeo's brakes? Riding the brakes or keeping your foot on the brake pedal (even lightly) can lead to transmission issues. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can I tow in a Alfa Romeo Spider? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small it is. The added load can mess with your transmission system if it exceeds your Spider’s towing capacity. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your Spider is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • How often does my Spider transmission fluid need to be checked? Caring for your Alfa Romeo Spider’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it 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. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
