1998 Ford E-150 Econoline Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Ford E-150 Econoline? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Ford E-150 Econoline engine to fail. 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. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce 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 spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? 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 the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
