1990 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 parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and eventually lead to Ford E-150 Econoline engine failure. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • 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. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Ford E-150 Econoline exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
