How often should I service my 1987 Peugeot 505?
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. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. 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 1987 Peugeot 505!
The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Peugeot, your vehicle manufacturer. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include oil changes, tire rotations, brake pad replacement, filter changes, and fluid checks and exchanges. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your 505 running for longer, keep you safer on the road, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 1987 Peugeot 505 problems later.
Bring your 1987 Peugeot 505 to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services 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. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your 505’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.
Could your 1987 Peugeot 505 be ready for a new battery? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your 505 may need a replacement battery sooner. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Peugeot 505 battery. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty 505) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Peugeot 505 won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.
Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can help your 1987 Peugeot 505's engine run smoother. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1987 505. 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'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1987 Peugeot 505.
