Oil Change Q&A for Your 1996 Ford E-150 Econoline Club Wagon

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Ford E-150 Econoline Club Wagon? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your Ford E-150 Econoline Club Wagon engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Ford oil on my own? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Ford exhaust smoke gray 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, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
