When to Change 1986 Peugeot 505 Engine Oil

Need more info about 1986 Peugeot 505 oil changes? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Peugeot recommends having your 1986 Peugeot 505’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your 505 may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Peugeot recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Peugeot 505. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What’s the Right Type of Oil for 1986 Peugeot 505?

Whether it’s synthetic, conventional, or a blend of both — your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right oil for your Peugeot 505. Peugeot has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the ideal engine oil for your 1986 505. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, keep the engine cool, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. In an oil change service, an auto technician will change your 505’s oil, replace and recycle your used oil and oil filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off important fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can drive easy knowing that we strive to do what's best for your vehicle and take into account your driving preferences, and the number of miles on your odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1986 Peugeot 505

  • Should I check my Peugeot 505 motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, 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.
  • Can I change my Peugeot oil on my own? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Peugeot 505 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
