1989 Ford E-150 Econoline Oil Change Questions

  • Should I check my Ford E-150 Econoline motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates 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 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? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, 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. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
