Oil Changes for 1987 Peugeot 505

When to Change 1987 Peugeot 505 Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 1987 Peugeot 505? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 1987 505’s oil should be changed according to Peugeot’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your 505 may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Peugeot if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Peugeot 505. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

1987 Peugeot 505 Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Peugeot 505 motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your 505’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Peugeot oil on my own? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil 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 exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
