Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Ford E-150 Econoline Running Newer, Longer

Bring your 1990 Ford E-150 Econoline to Firestone Complete Auto Care for factory-recommended maintenance services and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. 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.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1990 Ford E-150 Econoline? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the 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, you may find yourself (and your trusty E-150 Econoline) stuck in the middle of nowhere. 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.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can help your 1990 Ford E-150 Econoline's engine run smoother. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1990 E-150 Econoline. Remember, things like average outside temperature or frequency of trips could increase or decrease this interval for your specific vehicle. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1990 Ford E-150 Econoline.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Ford E-150 Econoline can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. When it comes to steering and suspension, you want to catch small problems before they turn into big (and expensive) ones. Trust our technicians to inspect system components and if needed, provide Ford E-150 Econoline steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Prevent damage or premature wear and tear on your Ford E-150 Econoline's steering system with regular maintenance.

  • What should I do after hitting a pothole in my Ford E-150 Econoline? You know your Ford E-150 Econoline better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When does my Ford E-150 Econoline need high mileage oil? Got 75,000+ miles on the odometer? Consider high mileage motor oil.

It can help reduce oil consumption, smoke, and emissions from older Ford E-150 Econoline engines.
  • Can Ford dashboard warning lights wait? Because there might be a problem under the hood. Those warning lights are there for a reason! As soon as you notice that one’s illuminated, take your Ford E-150 Econoline to Firestone Complete Auto Care so you can address any small problems long before they worsen.
