1983 Ford E-100 Econoline Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Ford E-100 Econoline motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your E-100 Econoline’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Ford E-100 Econoline oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. 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 Ford E-100 Econoline exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
