Here’s Why 1990 Peugeot 405 Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Peugeot 405 to last as long as possible. With the right maintenance at the right time, your 405 could be on the road well past the 200,000 mile mark.

Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1990 Peugeot 405!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Peugeot themselves. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your 405 perform better, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 1990 Peugeot 405 problems later.

Overview of Essential Peugeot 405 Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1990 Peugeot 405 and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your 405’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1990 Peugeot 405. In general, car batteries only last three to five years. There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Peugeot 405 battery. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your 405 stranded. Your Peugeot 405 won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1990 Peugeot 405 running newer, longer. To learn how often Peugeot recommends you have the oil changed in your 1990 405, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1990 Peugeot 405.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Peugeot 405 can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled!

To keep your car running at its best, it’s essential to have regular maintenance services on your Peugeot 405's steering and suspension system.

Without routine Peugeot 405 maintenance, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally.

Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Peugeot 405’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too.

Take an active role in maintaining your 1990 Peugeot 405. Get answers to common Peugeot 405 maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Peugeot 405? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When does my Peugeot 405 need high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Peugeot 405 engines.
  • Can Peugeot dashboard warning lights wait? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Peugeot 405 in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
