Peugeot recommends changing your 1983 505’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your 505 may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change 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.

In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Peugeot 505. 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 505 Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Peugeot 505 engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your 505’s engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Peugeot 505 oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Peugeot 505 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
