We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 1983 504’s oil should be changed according to Peugeot’s recommended oil change intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your 504 in the above table. Outside of Peugeot-recommended oil change intervals, your 504 may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice an unusual amount of 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 go at low speeds on long distance trips. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Peugeot 504. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

1983 Peugeot 504 Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Peugeot 504 engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your 504’s engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Peugeot 504 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 changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Peugeot exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
