Questions About 1987 Peugeot 505’s Transmission

  • What happens when you "ride" your Peugeot's brakes? Riding the brakes (keeping your foot lightly pressed on the brake pedal for a long time) can lead to transmission issues over time. Remember that when you’re driving down winding roads, and opt for engine braking when possible.
  • How much can my Peugeot tow?   Think twice before volunteering to tow your friend's moving trailer, no matter how small it is. Defying your 505 towing capacity can spell trouble for the transmission system. Double check your owner's manual to ensure your 505 is equipped with a towing setup and can handle whatever you're thinking about towing.
  • When should I have my 505's transmission fluid checked or exchanged? Caring for your Peugeot 505’s transmission fluid is a great way to help it perform. About every 30,000 to 60,000 miles is a good timeframe for having your transmission fluid inspected and perhaps changed. Service intervals can vary depending on how you use your Peugeot, so check with your technician first. Luckily, leaks and low fluid levels are easy to spot and inexpensive to fix.
