Overview of Essential Ford E-100 Econoline Maintenance Needs

Bring your 1983 Ford E-100 Econoline to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your E-100 Econoline’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1983 Ford E-100 Econoline? If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and 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. Extremely hot or cold temperatures can take a toll on your Ford E-100 Econoline battery, and so can frequent short drives. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty E-100 Econoline) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Ford E-100 Econoline won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs.
