What to Know About 1985 Peugeot 505 Scheduled Maintenance

When it comes to your Peugeot 505, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. With the right maintenance at the right time, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your 505. But how do you know what service to get and when? There's no need to guess when it's time to get 505 maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1985 Peugeot 505!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Peugeot themselves. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; in most cases, though, recommended maintenance will consist of services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. Staying on track with routine service appointments can help your 505 perform better, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 1985 Peugeot 505 problems.

Overview of Essential Peugeot 505 Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1985 Peugeot 505 and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. 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.

Could your 1985 Peugeot 505 be ready for a new battery? If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your 505 may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Peugeot 505 battery. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your 505 stranded. Your Peugeot 505 won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1985 Peugeot 505 engine. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1985 505. 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'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1985 Peugeot 505.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Peugeot 505 can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, perform Peugeot 505 suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Peugeot 505's steering system with regular maintenance.

Without routine Peugeot 505 maintenance, you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. Don’t sweat it, though! Our technicians can take care of those issues, too. At Firestone Complete Auto Care, we have what it takes to provide top-notch service for your Peugeot 505 engine heating and cooling systems, as well as your air conditioning. Is your Peugeot 505 radiator in need of replacement? We got it. A/C smelling musty? We’re here to fix that, too. Firestone Complete Auto Care is your spot for 1985 Peugeot 505 maintenance.

So visit us regularly, or visit us urgently. Many locations are open on weekends and in the evening.

1985 Peugeot 505 Maintenance Q&A

Take an active role in maintaining your 1985 Peugeot 505. Get answers to common Peugeot 505 maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • What do I do if I hit a pothole in my Peugeot 505? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When does my Peugeot 505 need high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Peugeot 505 engines.
  •  Why are my Peugeot dashboard lights on? It's better to get them addressed as soon as possible. An illuminated dashboard light means something in your vehicle isn't functioning like it should. Letting problems linger can mean bad news for your Peugeot 505, so be sure to take your car in for service as soon as you notice an illuminated dashboard light
