Oil and lube services are also our specialties. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Ford recommends changing your 2004 E-150’s oil at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your E-150 may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust.

In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Ford E-150. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

2004 Ford E-150 Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Ford E-150? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your E-150’s engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Ford oil on my own? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of 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 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
