When to Change 2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio Engine Oil

Need more info about 2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio oil changes? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know the ins and outs of 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 having your 2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your Stelvio may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, 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, enjoy off-roading, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Alfa Romeo Stelvio. 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.

2018 Alfa Romeo Stelvio Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Alfa Romeo Stelvio motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your Alfa Romeo Stelvio engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Alfa Romeo Stelvio 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 professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle 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. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
