Overview of Essential Ford E-150 Econoline Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1989 Ford E-150 Econoline and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your E-150 Econoline’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Could your 1989 Ford E-150 Econoline be ready for a new battery? 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). Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your E-150 Econoline may need a replacement battery sooner. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Ford E-150 Econoline battery. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your E-150 Econoline stranded. Your Ford E-150 Econoline won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.
