When to Change 1992 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.”

Alfa Romeo recommends changing your 1992 Spider’s oil at regular 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 engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Alfa Romeo if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Alfa Romeo Spider. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

1992 Alfa Romeo Spider Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Alfa Romeo Spider? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, overheat, 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 engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. 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 also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Alfa Romeo Spider exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
