It’s best to get a brake check before your Ford E-150 Econoline shows signs of brake troubles. We offer free brake inspections as a benefit to all of our customers so that we can help prevent problems from starting in the first place. You can ask for a free brake check at any time. Schedule one on its own or request a brake check during a regular service, like a battery replacement. If you've been putting off regular car care, though, keep the following brake symptoms in mind.
Symptoms of bad brakes include unusual sounds, vibration or pulsation in the pedal or steering wheel, a burning smell around the tires, a dashboard brake light that’s powered on, or the feeling that something is "off." You know your Ford E-150 Econoline like the back of your hand. And you don't have to wait for something to go wrong. Stay ahead of problems with a free brake check. In general, manufacturers like Ford advise that at a minimum, front and rear brakes are removed and serviced at least once every 12,000 miles or 12 months. That includes checking the parking brake, too. Brake service and/or repair should be performed as necessary. Want to keep your brakes ready for anything?

When should you change the brake pads on your 1986 Ford E-150 Econoline? It largely depends on where and how you drive. In general, brake pads last from 30,000 to 40,000 miles. Certain factors, like driving mostly on highways and braking smoothly, can help your brake pads last longer. If you often haul heavy loads or ride your brakes, your brake pads may wear out sooner. How often you need to replace your brake pads also depends on what kind you have on your E-150 Econoline. Not all brake pads are created equally. Some materials last longer. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for Ford E-150 Econolines that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. We do brake checks and brake pad replacements every day, and for your E-150 Econoline, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Ford’s standards.
You might have a strong and reliable engine in your Ford E-150 Econoline. One that's ready to get you to 200,000 miles and beyond. But if you can’t brake, it might as well be scrap metal. If you’re experiencing squeaky brakes or a loss of braking power, don’t wait! Unresponsive brakes make it tough to give the road your best. Plus, waiting can lead to more expensive parts wearing out and requiring replacement. For instance, rotors may start to warp when you drive on worn brake pads, shortening the life of healthy parts due to the metal on metal grinding that occurs. We can help prevent that damage from happening. Go to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for 1986 Ford E-150 Econoline brake repairs.
