Ford recommends changing your 1987 E-250 Econoline’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your E-250 Econoline may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust.

1987 Ford E-250 Econoline Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Ford E-250 Econoline? 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 should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Ford E-250 Econoline oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Ford exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
