1983 Peugeot 504 Tune-Up & Engine Service

Tune-Ups to Help Your Peugeot 504 Run Better

Is it tune-up time? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, now is the time to work on that habit, especially if you drive a 1983 Peugeot 504. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your 504’s engine. Tune-ups help your engine start smoothly and run efficiently, which can mean better fuel economy (a win for you) and lower emissions (a win for the environment). When you take your car for regular engine tune-ups as recommended by Peugeot, you’re taking vital steps toward keeping your 504’s engine running smoother, longer.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Peugeot 504

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 1983 Peugeot 504. The first is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. It includes a complete visual inspection of engine components, installation of new spark plugs, and a lifetime warranty on parts*. Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your 504. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air filter. Yet another service is a fuel system cleaning process, which involves removing varnish, dirt, and carbon deposits that have built up inside the fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate in your 504. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Here’s something to remember when choosing services: the mileage and service history of your 504 can determine what kind of service it needs. If you’re not sure what services are the best fit for your car, let us help! Talk to a technician about your driving style, mileage, and service history to learn more about your vehicle's specific needs.

1983 Peugeot 504 Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • Will it hurt my Peugeot 504 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 does a puddle underneath my Peugeot 504 mean? Puddles could indicate that your vehicle is leaking coolant, oil, or brake fluid. Ignoring these leaks can lead to permanent engine damage, so address these symptoms ASAP with a tune-up service.
  • Are some driving habits better for my Peugeot 504 engine than others? 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.
