How often should I service my 1989 Peugeot 505?
When it comes to your Peugeot 505, how you treat your car makes all the difference in its performance. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your 505 has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. 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 1989 Peugeot 505 maintenance schedule!
This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Peugeot themselves. Scheduled maintenance services can vary depending on driving conditions, climate, and other factors; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like tire rotations, vital fluid checks/exchanges, filter changes, brake pad replacement, and oil changes. 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 maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1989 Peugeot 505 problems in the future.
Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1989 Peugeot 505 for factory-recommended routine maintenance and an expert technician will begin by performing 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.
Could your 1989 Peugeot 505 be ready for a new battery? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Peugeot 505 battery. 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.
Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can help your 1989 Peugeot 505's engine run smoother. To learn how often Peugeot recommends you have the oil changed in your 1989 505, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1989 Peugeot 505.
