2021 Alfa Romeo Stelvio in the Mountains

How Often Should You Change Your Oil?

When you own a luxurious high-performance Alfa Romeo, it’s essential that you follow Alfa Romeo maintenance schedule guidelines. How often should you change your oil in an Alfa Romeo? Alfa Romeo oil change frequency guidelines suggest a visit once every 5,000 miles. If you drive about as much as the average Southlake drivers, that means you’ll take a visit to our service center two to three times each year



Understanding Oil Change Frequency Guidelines

All Alfa Romeo vehicles made during and after 2010 require synthetic motor oil replacements. If you’re planning to take care of oil service at home, you’ll need to pick up an approved motor oil and oil filter from our Hurst parts department

While most synthetic oil can last longer than 5,000 miles, changing your oil more often will only benefit your vehicle in the long run. And, coming in every 5,000 miles allows us to take care of all your vehicle’s most important regular service requirements at once. 

When Should You Adjust Your Oil Change Frequency?

There are a few aspects to consider when you’re wondering how often to change your oil. If you’re pushing your vehicle to the limits of performance on track days, or if you regularly engage in any of the following, you may want to schedule service more often:

  • Racing or performance driving
  • Commercial use
  • Towing or carrying heavy payloads
  • Off-road driving or driving on dirt/gravel roads

What Happens When Your Car’s Oil Isn’t Changed? 

Oil is often referred to as the engine’s lifeblood, and that’s no exaggeration. That’s because oil lubricates all moving parts inside your engine and helps to dissipate heat away from vital engine components. When you avoid regular oil changes, your oil becomes exponentially less effective at doing its job.

If you want to avoid the worst, schedule service regularly and check your oil levels monthly to avoid leaks. If you notice any of the following, bring your vehicle in as soon as possible:

  • Excessive smoke from the exhaust pipe
  • Engine overheating
  • ‘Check engine’ or ‘oil lamp’ warning lights illuminated
  • Noticeable engine knocking, or frequent misfires
  • Oil is burnt-smelling, dark brown, or full of small metal particle
