Do you own a Peugeot 206 (2002 to 2009 models, both petrol and diesel engines) and have questions about its routine maintenance, such as when to change the oil, or even what oil type to use? Perhaps you've been wondering how often to change the fluids in your Peugeot 206 or how often to get it serviced, check the brakes and perform other common jobs.
Modern cars like the Peugeot 206 need much less maintenance than the vehicles of 25 years ago, but they still have needs. You no longer have to do a service every 6 months or change the oil every 3 months, but regular fluid changes are still essential to your Peugeot 206’s longevity.
What follows is our quick reference guide to many of the recommended routine maintenance tasks for the Peugeot 206, most of which you can do yourself at home. If you need more guidance or step-by-step instructions, check out the video tutorials in our online manual, or get our traditional printed manual.

*Do not re-use
The maintenance intervals in this manual are provided with the assumption that you, not the dealer, will be carrying out the work. These are the minimum intervals recommended by us for vehicles driven daily. If you wish to keep your vehicle in peak condition at all times, you may wish to perform some of these procedures more often. We encourage frequent maintenance since it enhances the efficiency, performance and resale value of your vehicle.
If the vehicle is driven in dusty areas, used to tow a trailer, or driven frequently at slow speeds (idling in traffic) or on short journeys, more frequent maintenance intervals are recommended.
Every 250 miles
Every 10 000 miles or 12 months – whichever comes first
*Peugeot recommend the engine oil and filter are changed every 20 000 miles or two years. However, oil and filter changes are good for the engine and we recommend changing the oil more frequently, especially if the vehicle is used on a lot of short journeys.
Every 20 000 miles or 2 years – whichever comes first
Every 40 000 miles
*Although the normal interval for timing belt renewal is 80 000 miles, it is strongly recommended that the interval is reduced to 40 000 miles, especially on vehicles which are subjected to intensive use, ie, mainly short journeys or a lot of stop-start driving. The actual belt renewal interval is therefore very much up to the individual owner, but bear in mind that severe engine damage will result if the belt breaks.
Every 40 000 miles or 2 years – whichever comes first
Every 40 000 miles or 4 years – whichever comes first
* On some models the fuel filter is part of the fuel pump/sender unit in the fuel tank. The fuel filter renewal procedure in this Chapter is for models with a separate fuel filter situated at the side of the fuel tank.
Every 10 years
Every 250 miles
Every 6000 miles or 12 months – whichever comes sooner
*Peugeot recommend that the engine oil and filter are changed every 10 000 miles or 2 years. However, oil and filter changes are good for the engine and we recommend that the oil and filter are renewed more frequently, especially if the vehicle is used on a lot of short journeys.
Every 12 000 miles
Every 24 000 miles
Every 36 000 miles or 3 years
*Although the Peugeot interval for timing belt renewal is 96 000 miles for normal use, and 80 000 miles for use in adverse conditions, it is strongly recommended that the timing belt renewal interval is reduced to 36 000 miles on vehicles which are subjected to intensive use, ie, mainly short journeys or a lot of stop-start driving. The actual belt renewal interval is therefore very much up to the individual owner, but bear in mind that severe engine damage will result if the belt breaks.
Every 36 000 miles or 2 years, whichever comes sooner
Every 72 000 miles or 5 years – whichever comes sooner
Every 10 years
