1990 Peugeot 405 Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Tune-Ups to Help Your Peugeot 405 Run Better

Is it tune-up time? If you usually wait until your car has an issue to take it in for service, it could be time for a new way of doing things, especially if you drive a 1990 Peugeot 405. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your 405. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, which can lead to lower emission levels and better fuel economy. When you get routine engine tune-ups based on Peugeot's recommendations, you’re taking vital steps toward keeping your 405’s engine running smoother, longer.

Engine Tune-Up for Peugeot 405

Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to Peugeot 405 engine tune-up services. The first is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. The standard Firestone Tune-Up includes new spark plugs (and installation!), a thorough inspection of engine components, and a lifetime parts warranty*. A second service option replaces the air and fuel filter in your 405. Our third service is a thorough cleaning of the fuel system. During this type of tune-up, we use a three-step process to get rid of harmful varnish, dirt, and carbon deposit buildup in your 405’s fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This goes a long way in boosting your fuel system’s overall performance. Keep in mind that your 405's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs. This means that a tune-up service that’s a great fit for another car may not be optimal for yours. Chat with a Firestone technician before you jump into a specific service to ensure your engine tune-up money is well-spent.

Questions About 1990 Peugeot 405 Engine Tune-Ups

  • Will it hurt my Peugeot 405 to drive with old spark plugs? Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so. Without the spark of electricity created by spark plugs, your engine doesn’t have the combustion it needs to start — which could leave you stranded on the road. Always replace your spark plugs on time based on Peugeot’s recommendations.
  • What should I do if I see leaks under my 405? Puddles could indicate an oil leak, coolant leak, or brake fluid leak– all of which can critically hurt your engine. Have your engine inspected as soon as you spot a pool of liquid in your usual parking spot.
  • What do hard starts and stops do to my 405 engine? Hard starts and stops put extra wear and tear on engine components. Smooth, gradual starts and stops, on the other hand, are a great way to help your engine run better. They can also help maximize your fuel economy.
