How often should I service my 1983 Peugeot 604?

Here’s Why 1983 Peugeot 604 Scheduled Maintenance Matters

You want your Peugeot 604 to last as long as possible. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, your 604 has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. Not an expert in what services your car needs and when? No problem. There's no need to guess when it's time to get 604 maintenance, and no need to wait until something goes wrong. It’s as easy as following the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been written specifically for your 1983 Peugeot 604!

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 604's life, decrease your risk of dangerous malfunctions on the road, and maybe even save you the headache of dealing with common 1983 Peugeot 604 problems in the future.

Overview of Essential Peugeot 604 Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1983 Peugeot 604 for factory-recommended routine maintenance and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your 604. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1983 Peugeot 604? 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. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Peugeot 604 battery. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). Your Peugeot 604 could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can help your 1983 Peugeot 604's engine run smoother. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1983 604. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1983 Peugeot 604.

Maintaining your Peugeot 604 steering and suspension system can improve ride comfort and help you maintain control of your vehicle.

Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Peugeot 604's steering system with regular maintenance.

Without routine Peugeot 604 maintenance, you could be feeling the heat on the road – literally! A malfunctioning A/C system or overheating engine can wreak havoc on your car. We can help you with all those issues. Our technicians have the knowledge and tools to repair and maintain the heating and cooling systems for your Peugeot 604’s engine, and we can service your A/C system, too.

1983 Peugeot 604 Maintenance Q&A

Take an active role in maintaining your 1983 Peugeot 604. Get answers to common Peugeot 604 maintenance questions and learn more about caring for your vehicle.

  • When should I have Peugeot 604 alignment checked? Check your car for pothole damage! If you’ve recently hit a pothole (or even if you don’t remember hitting one… they can be sneaky!) check your tire treads, tire sidewalls, and wheels for damage. Potholes can also knock your car out of alignment, so have your alignment checked if you suspect you’ve driven over a rough patch of road lately.
  • When should I switch my Peugeot 604 to high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil. High mileage oil is formulated to address the specific problems encountered by high mileage vehicles, or those with more than 75,000 miles. It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Peugeot 604 engines.
  •  Why are my Peugeot dashboard lights on? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason! As soon as you notice that one’s illuminated, take your Peugeot 604 to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
