How often should I service my 1984 Peugeot 505?
Take care of your Peugeot 505 and it'll take care of you. With proactive maintenance, your 505 has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. There's no need to guess when it's time to get 505 maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Just follow your 1984 Peugeot 505 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. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your 505 perform better, increase your vehicle safety, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 1984 Peugeot 505 problems later.
Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1984 Peugeot 505 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. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your 505's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.
Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1984 Peugeot 505. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your 505 may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Peugeot 505 battery, and so can frequent short drives. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. 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 505 could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.
Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can help your 1984 Peugeot 505's engine run smoother. To learn how often Peugeot recommends you have the oil changed in your 1984 505, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1984 Peugeot 505.
Routine upkeep for your Peugeot 505 suspension and steering system can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. Don’t let a misalignment or pulling steering wheel put you in danger.

Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Peugeot 505's steering system with regular maintenance.
If you skip recommended Peugeot 505 services, 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!). Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too.
