1984 Ford E-150 Econoline Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Ford E-150 Econoline? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Ford E-150 Econoline 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 E-150 Econoline oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Ford E-150 Econoline exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
