Ford recommends having your 2008 Ford E-150’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your E-150 in the above table. Outside of Ford-recommended oil change intervals, your E-150 may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Ford recommends if you haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or go long distances at low speeds. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Ford E-150. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

2008 Ford E-150 Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Ford E-150? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Ford E-150 engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Ford E-150 oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Ford E-150 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is 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 worn cylinder walls.
