Is it tune-up time? If you usually wait until your car has an issue to take it in for service, now is the time to work on that habit, particularly if you want to keep your 1987 Peugeot 505 in tip-top shape. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your 505’s engine. They're designed to help your engine start easier and run more efficiently, which can mean better fuel economy (a win for you) and lower emissions (a win for the environment). 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.
Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 1987 Peugeot 505. The standard Firestone Tune-Up is one service option. This includes the installation of new spark plugs and a visual inspection of your engine’s components, plus a lifetime warranty on parts*. The second service focuses on your 505's filters, specifically replacing the air filter and fuel filter. Our third service is a thorough cleaning of the fuel system. During this type of tune-up, we use a three-step process to get rid of harmful varnish, dirt, and carbon deposit buildup in your 505’s fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Keep in mind that your 505's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs. A one-size-fits-all engine tune-up procedure doesn’t necessarily exist. Ask one of our technicians what your vehicle needs, based on your driving habits and your car’s current condition.
Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for your next 1987 505 engine tune-up. Not sure when you’re due for a tune-up? Use Peugeot’s recommended maintenance schedule as a reference point, or schedule an appointment ASAP if you notice any of these signs: shaking while the engine is idling, poor fuel economy, engine knocking, or an illuminated check engine light.
