Scheduled Maintenance for Your 1983 Peugeot 504

What is the recommended maintenance schedule for the 1983 Peugeot 504?

What to Know About 1983 Peugeot 504 Scheduled Maintenance

You want your Peugeot 504 to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your 504 has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. There's no need to guess when it's time to get 504 maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Just follow your 1983 Peugeot 504 maintenance schedule!

Peugeot knows your vehicle inside and out (they made it, after all!), so they’ve designed this schedule with your car’s unique needs in mind. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your 504 running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1983 Peugeot 504 problems in the future.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Peugeot 504 Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1983 Peugeot 504 for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your 504. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1983 Peugeot 504. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your 504 may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Peugeot 504 battery, and so can frequent short drives. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Peugeot 504 won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1983 Peugeot 504 engine. To learn how often Peugeot recommends you have the oil changed in your 1983 504, 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. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1983 Peugeot 504? We can help with that, too!

Maintaining your Peugeot 504 steering and suspension system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, perform Peugeot 504 suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Components within your Peugeot 504's steering system require regular maintenance.

Without routine Peugeot 504 maintenance, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Peugeot 504’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too. Need a new Peugeot 504 radiator? We got it. Is your A/C blowing hot air? We'll fix it. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your one-stop shop for 1983 Peugeot 504 maintenance and repairs.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Peugeot 504? 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 504 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 504 engines.
  • Can Peugeot dashboard warning lights wait? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason! As soon as you notice that one’s illuminated, take your Peugeot 504 to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
