Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Ford E-150 Econoline

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1998 Ford E-150 Econoline and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1998 Ford E-150 Econoline. Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. 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. While you could wait until your battery fails and you hear the dreaded "click," you're better off replacing it before then! 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.

A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We can also answer any questions you have about what type of oil to use for your 1998 Ford E-150 Econoline.
