Engine Tune-Up Service for Your 1986 Peugeot 505

Tune-Ups to Help Your Peugeot 505 Run Better

Is it time for an engine tune-up? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, it could be time for a new way of doing things, especially if you want your 1986 Peugeot 505’s engine to last for a long time. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your 505. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, which can lead to lower emission levels and better fuel economy. When you follow the guidelines specified by Peugeot for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you’re taking vital steps toward keeping your 505’s engine running smoother, longer.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Peugeot 505

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 1986 Peugeot 505. The first is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. The standard Firestone Tune-Up includes new spark plugs (and installation!), a thorough inspection of engine components, and a lifetime parts warranty*. Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your 505. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air filter. Yet another service is a fuel system cleaning process, which involves removing varnish, dirt, and carbon deposits that have built up inside the fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate in your 505. This goes a long way in boosting your fuel system’s overall performance. Consider this when choosing a tune-up service for your 505: your vehicle’s maintenance record and mileage can determine which service is best. This means that a tune-up service that’s a great fit for another car may not be optimal for yours. Chat with a Firestone technician before you jump into a specific service to ensure your engine tune-up money is well-spent.

1986 Peugeot 505 Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • What happens if my Peugeot 505 spark plugs fail? When it’s time to replace the spark plugs, don’t delay. These small (but vital!) parts provide the electric spark that your car needs in order to start, and old spark plugs can prevent your car from starting at all. Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so.
  • What do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my Peugeot 505? Puddles could indicate that your vehicle is leaking coolant, oil, or brake fluid. Ignoring these leaks can lead to permanent engine damage, so address these symptoms ASAP with a tune-up service.
  • What do hard starts and stops do to my 505 engine? Hard stops and starts can lead to premature wear on your engine’s components. Lighten up that lead foot and opt for steady, fluid starts and stops instead. Your engine (and your passengers!) will thank you.
