1993 Alfa Romeo Spider Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Alfa Romeo Spider motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, 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. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Alfa Romeo exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
