When it comes to scheduling service on your Alfa Romeo vehicle, there is often some confusion. You may wonder whether you actually need the service or whether you can just wait until a problem appears, or you may wonder if it’s OK to ignore that check engine light. Here at our Jake Sweeney service center at Jake Sweeney Alfa Romeo, our certified mechanics are happy to answer any questions about Alfa Romeo service.
How Often Should I Get Service?
If you’re wondering how often you should bring your Alfa Romeo car into our dealership for service, your first recourse should be to look at your model’s owner’s manual. It will outline the recommended service schedule for your vehicle, and that schedule should be followed for optimal performance.
What Should I Do When the Check Engine Light Turns On?
The check engine light turning on could be an indication of a lot of different issues. It could be something basic like a loose gas cap, or it could indicate something serious. To be safe, bring your vehicle into Jake Sweeney Alfa Romeo so that our mechanics can diagnose the issue.
How Often Should I Have My Brakes Checked?
It’s important to follow the manufacturer’s recommended maintenance schedule for brake service. Most people get their brakes checked when they bring their vehicle in for a tire rotation.
What Type of Oil Do I Need?
There are a few different types of oil that can be put into an Alfa Romeo car. Conventional motor oil needs to be changed every 3,000 miles and requires a conventional filter. Synthetic oil is of higher quality and can last anywhere from 6,000 to 12,000 miles.
