What is the maintenance schedule for the 1988 Peugeot 505?
Take care of your Peugeot 505 and it'll take care of you. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your 505. But how do you know what service to get and when? Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your 505, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 1988 Peugeot 505 maintenance schedule!
The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Peugeot, your vehicle manufacturer. Depending on driving conditions and climate in your area (as well as other contributing factors, like your personal travel habits), your car’s scheduled maintenance needs may vary; however, there’s a good chance that your vehicle’s recommended maintenance services will include fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Scheduling routine service appointments is one of the best ways to help extend your 505's life, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and prevent common 1988 Peugeot 505 problems.
Bring your 1988 Peugeot 505 to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your 505's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.
Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1988 Peugeot 505? If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your 505 may need a replacement battery sooner. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Peugeot 505 battery, and so can frequent short drives. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. 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.
In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can help your 1988 Peugeot 505's engine run smoother. See Peugeot's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1988 505 in the chart at the top of this page. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1988 Peugeot 505? We can help with that, too!
Periodic service to the steering system in your Peugeot 505 can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! You can count on Firestone Complete Auto Care’s trained technicians to inspect this system and, if needed, perform Peugeot 505 suspension and steering services. These might include wheel alignment, power steering fluid flushes and replenishments, ball joint lubrication, wheel bearing replacement, and strut replacement. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Peugeot 505's steering system with regular maintenance.
If you skip recommended Peugeot 505 services, you (and your engine) could quickly lose your cool when there's a problem on the road–especially if that problem is an overheated engine or broken A/C.
