1988 Peugeot 505 Tune-Up & Engine Service

Enhance Peugeot 505 Performance with a Tune-Up

Is it time for an engine tune-up? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, now is the time to work on that habit, especially if you want your 1988 Peugeot 505’s engine to last for a long time. Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your 505’s power on the road. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, which can lead to lower emission levels and better fuel economy. When you get routine engine tune-ups based on Peugeot's recommendations, you can rest assured you’re investing in your 505’s long-term engine performance.

Peugeot 505 Engine Tune-Up Services

Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to Peugeot 505 engine tune-up services. One option is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. It includes a complete visual inspection of engine components, installation of new spark plugs, and a lifetime warranty on parts*. Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your 505. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air 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). Here’s something to remember when choosing services: the mileage and service history of your 505 can determine what kind of service it needs. If you’re not sure what services are the best fit for your car, let us help! Chat with a Firestone technician before you jump into a specific service to ensure your engine tune-up money is well-spent.

1988 Peugeot 505 Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • When should Peugeot 505 spark plugs be replaced? Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so. Without the spark of electricity created by spark plugs, your engine doesn’t have the combustion it needs to start — which could leave you stranded on the road. Always replace your spark plugs on time based on Peugeot’s recommendations.
  • What do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my Peugeot 505? Puddles could indicate that your vehicle is leaking coolant, oil, or brake fluid. Ignoring these leaks can lead to permanent engine damage, so address these symptoms ASAP with a tune-up service.
  • Are hard starts and stops bad for my Peugeot 505 engine? Hard starts and stops put extra wear and tear on engine components. Smooth, gradual starts and stops, on the other hand, are a great way to help your engine run better. They can also help maximize your fuel economy.
