How Often to Get 1990 Peugeot 505 Oil Changes

Need more info about 1990 Peugeot 505 oil changes? Turn to Firestone Complete Auto Care! Our expertise goes beyond tires. We know the ins and outs of 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.

Your 1990 505’s oil should be changed according to Peugeot’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Peugeot-recommended oil change intervals, your 505 may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Peugeot if you regularly haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, go off-roading a lot, or go long distances at low speeds. In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage 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.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1990 Peugeot 505

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Peugeot 505? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your Peugeot 505 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 oil on my own? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil 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 exhaust smoke gray or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
