Oil Change Q&A for Your 1985 Ford E-250 Econoline

  • Should I check my Ford E-250 Econoline 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 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 E-250 Econoline oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. 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 exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
