Why is Your 1985 505’s Transmission So Important?

The transmission delivers power from the motor to your wheels so that you can drive at your desired speed. Because of the transmission’s responsibility to translate the right dose of power into the right amount of speed, a tiny transmission issue can take a major toll on your car’s performance. They're often easy to notice. Peugeot 505 transmission problems can present themselves as shifting delays, grinding when accelerating, the car shaking at any speed, or whistling noises or a burning smell coming from beneath the hood. If you don’t pay attention to Peugeot 505 transmission trouble you could see your fuel economy decrease or find that your 505 isn’t working at all.

1985 Peugeot 505 Transmission Q&A

  • What happens if I "ride" my 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. Keep that in mind when driving in hilly terrain and remember to use engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Peugeot tow?   Think twice before offering to tow something for a friend, no matter how light the load might seem. 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? Regularly checking and exchanging your 1985 505’s transmission fluid is one of the best ways to help the transmission system perform. 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.
