Alfa Romeo Auto Repair Tips

The more you know about car care and service, the easier it will be to get your vehicle back on the road. Here are a few of the common car repair needs that you’ll want to look out for:

  • Oil Changes: The oil in your vehicle helps to keep it cool and well-lubricated so the parts don’t grind or scrape. It also collects dirt and debris from the road to help protect the engine. If you hear scraping, see darker exhaust, or notice that your mileage has gone down, it may be time for fresh oil.
  • Brake Pads: Brake pads typically last 30,000-70,000 miles, depending on what kind of driving you do. If your vehicle is suddenly taking longer to stop, it squeals or grinds when braking, or veers in one direction, one or both of your brake pads need to be replaced.
  • Battery: Your battery will need to be replaced every three to five years, but environmental factors can also reduce battery capacity. If your vehicle is struggling to turn over, you smell sulfur, or you notice obvious battery corrosion, schedule a replacement right away.
  • Tires: You’ll need to keep your tires properly inflated and rotated to keep your vehicle safe. Check for signs of low or uneven tread, inflate them regularly, especially before long trips, and bring your Alfa Romeo vehicle in for routine tire rotations.
