1988 Peugeot 505 Oil Change Service

When to Change 1988 Peugeot 505 Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Peugeot 505’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about motor oil, too. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Peugeot recommends changing your 1988 505’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your 505 may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Peugeot recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, enjoy off-roading, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Peugeot 505. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What Kind of Oil Should I Get for My Peugeot 505?

Whether you need high mileage oil, synthetic oil, or conventional oil, you'll find the right 1988 Peugeot 505 motor oil at Firestone Complete Auto Care. Peugeot has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 1988 505. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, keep the engine cool, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. In an oil change service, a technician will change your 505's oil, replace and recycle your used oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and perform a free inspection on the rest of your vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your 505 by taking into account your driving style, and the number of miles on your odometer.

1988 Peugeot 505 Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Peugeot 505 motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your 505’s engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Peugeot 505 oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Peugeot 505 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
