1991 Peugeot 505 Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Peugeot 505 engine? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, overheat, 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.
  • How hard is it to change Peugeot 505 oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Peugeot exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
