What is the maintenance schedule for the 1986 Peugeot 505?

Here’s Why 1986 Peugeot 505 Scheduled Maintenance Matters

Take care of your Peugeot 505 and it'll take care of you. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your 505 has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. But how do you know what service to get and when? Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your 505, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1986 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; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your 505 running for longer, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1986 Peugeot 505 problems in the future.

Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Peugeot 505

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1986 Peugeot 505 and an expert technician will begin by performing 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. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your 505. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1986 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. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your 505 stranded. Your Peugeot 505 won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1986 Peugeot 505 running newer, longer. To learn how often Peugeot recommends you have the oil changed in your 1986 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. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1986 Peugeot 505.

Routine upkeep for your Peugeot 505 suspension and steering system can help you keep control of your vehicle at all times (plus, it can make for a smoother ride!). 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. Components within your Peugeot 505's steering system require regular maintenance.

If you fall behind on routine Peugeot 505 maintenance (or worse, don’t do it at all!), 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. 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 it time to replace the radiator in your Peugeot 505? We got it. Got a funny smell coming from your A/C? We’re on it.

  • What should I do after hitting 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 should I switch my Peugeot 505 to 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.
  • Can Peugeot dashboard warning lights wait? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason! As soon as you notice that one’s illuminated, take your Peugeot 505 to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
