Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Ford E-150 Econoline Club Wagon Running Newer, Longer

Bring your 1989 Ford E-150 Econoline Club Wagon to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and a skilled technician will start the appointment with 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-150 Econoline Club Wagon’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1989 Ford E-150 Econoline Club Wagon. 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. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Ford E-150 Econoline Club Wagon battery. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty E-150 Econoline Club Wagon) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Ford E-150 Econoline Club Wagon won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.
