1985 Ford E-250 Econoline Club Wagon Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Ford E-250 Econoline Club Wagon motor oil level? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Ford E-250 Econoline Club Wagon engine to fail. 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-250 Econoline Club Wagon oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Ford E-250 Econoline Club Wagon exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
