1984 Peugeot 505 Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Peugeot 505 motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Peugeot 505 engine failure. 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. Getting a professional oil change reduces 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. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
