1989 Peugeot 405 Oil Change Service

How Often to Change 1989 Peugeot 405 Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1989 Peugeot 405? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 1989 405’s oil should be changed according to Peugeot’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your 405 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, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Peugeot recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty terrain, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Peugeot 405. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

What Type of Oil Does My Peugeot 405 Need?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 1989 Peugeot 405 motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Peugeot has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 1989 405. Motor oil reduces friction between engine components, regulate engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During your oil change service, one of our techs will change your 405’s oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, check all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving style, weather and road conditions,

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1989 Peugeot 405

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Peugeot 405? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Peugeot 405 engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Peugeot 405 oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d 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 Peugeot 405 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
