1984 Peugeot 505 Transmission Q&A

  • What happens when you "ride" your Peugeot's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Pay attention to how often you apply your brake and use engine braking when possible.
  • What can I tow in a Peugeot? Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how small. The added weight can cause issues with your transmission if your vehicle isn't equipped to handle the load. Always consult your owner's manual before towing or hauling something.
  • How often does my 505 transmission fluid need to be checked? Maintaining your Peugeot 505 transmission fluid is one of the best ways to maintain your transmission's health. A general rule of thumb is to have your transmission fluid checked and changed about every 30,000 to 60,000 miles, but that timeline can change if you're hard on your Peugeot. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
