Oil Change Q&A for Your 1986 Ford E-250 Econoline

  • Should I check my Ford E-250 Econoline motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. 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 you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Ford E-250 Econoline oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Ford E-250 Econoline 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. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
