1990 Peugeot 405 Questions & Answers

  • What happens if I "ride" my Peugeot's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Peugeot? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small it is. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your 405 is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my 405's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Maintaining your Peugeot 405 transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Peugeot. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
