It’s best to get a brake check before your Ford E-250 Econoline shows signs of brake troubles. That's one reason we offer complimentary brake checks so that we can help you stay one step ahead of serious problems. You can request a free brake inspection at any time or during another service, like an oil change. If life has gotten in the way of everyday car care, keep the following brake information in mind.
Symptoms of bad brakes include unusual sounds, pulsation or vibration in the steering wheel or pedal, a burning smell near your tires, an illuminated brake dashboard light, or the feeling that something is "off." You know your Ford E-250 Econoline like the back of your hand. Turn to our technicians to help keep your brakes at peak performance! Generally speaking, automakers like Ford suggest that at a minimum, front and rear brakes are removed and serviced at least once every 12 months or 12,000 miles. That includes checking the parking brake, too. Brake service and/or repair should be performed as necessary. Want to keep your brakes ready for anything?

When should you change the brake pads on your 1985 Ford E-250 Econoline? It depends on you and your driving style. The majority of brake pads last between 30,000 and 40,000 miles. Certain factors, like driving mostly on highways and braking smoothly, can help your brake pads last longer. If you often haul heavy loads or ride your brakes, your brake pads may wear out sooner. Your brake pad replacement interval also depends on what kind of brake pads you have on your E-250 Econoline right now. Are you still driving with the same pads as when you bought the car? Brake pads made of certain materials tend to outlast others. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers brake pad replacement for Ford E-250 Econolines that comes with a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty. We do brake checks and brake pad replacements every day, and for your E-250 Econoline, we’ll only use parts that meet or surpass Ford’s standards.
Your Ford E-250 Econoline may be powered by a strong engine. One that's ready to get you to 200,000 miles and beyond. But if you can’t brake, it might as well be scrap metal. If you notice your brakes are squeaking or not working well, don’t wait! Unresponsive brakes make it tough to give the road your best. Plus, ignoring your brake problems can result in more damage and higher brake repair bills. For instance, rotors may start to warp when you drive on worn brake pads, and the metal-to-metal grinding may compromise other healthy parts. We can help prevent that damage from happening.
