Peugeot parts and repairs

#1

The woman with the 87’ 505 wagon needed a source for service and parts. Peugeot Holm

http://www.peugeotholm.com/ is very helpfull

reasonable and has been around for ever. Western Hemispheres is another cheap source.

(google the web site.) The 2.2 turbo is prone to head cracks, but is probably a result of poor maintenance other than design. The pushrod engine (2.0 hemi) is about as bullet proof as it gets, the usually need a head gasket about 125k, but the engine is very reliable otherwise. Keep the manual tranny full of oil and it will last a very long time. it “splits” vertically, so it has a tendancy to leak the 20w50 motor oil required. Do NOT use gear oil in these manual units! Will turn the unit into a “crash” box, sychros will fail. These cars, with care, are rugged, sweet riding gems, the wagon is a virtual pick-up with awesome cargo room and 1/2 ton load capacity. Parts are available new, and are CHEAP! These are pretty easy to work on also.
