The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Ford E-150 Econoline Club Wagon engine tune-up services. The standard Firestone Tune-Up is one service option.

A second service option replaces the air and fuel filter in your E-150 Econoline Club Wagon. Our third service is a thorough cleaning of the fuel system. During this type of tune-up, we use a three-step process to get rid of harmful varnish, dirt, and carbon deposit buildup in your E-150 Econoline Club Wagon’s fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This goes a long way in boosting your fuel system’s overall performance. Consider this when choosing a tune-up service for your E-150 Econoline Club Wagon: your vehicle’s maintenance record and mileage can determine which service is best. This means that a tune-up service that’s a great fit for another car may not be optimal for yours.

1988 Ford E-150 Econoline Club Wagon Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • When should Ford E-150 Econoline Club Wagon spark plugs be replaced? Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so. Without the spark of electricity created by spark plugs, your engine doesn’t have the combustion it needs to start — which could leave you stranded on the road. Always replace your spark plugs on time based on Ford’s recommendations.
  • What does a puddle underneath my Ford E-150 Econoline Club Wagon mean? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Ford E-150 Econoline Club Wagon. It could signal a coolant leak, brake fluid leak, or an oil leak. Let any one of these leaks linger and it could cause engine damage.
  • Are hard starts and stops bad for my Ford E-150 Econoline Club Wagon engine? Hard starts and stops put extra wear and tear on engine components. Smooth, gradual starts and stops, on the other hand, are a great way to help your engine run better. They can also help maximize your fuel economy.
