Tune-Ups to Help Your Ford E-250 Econoline Run Better

Is it tune-up time? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, it might be time to change your ways, especially if you drive a 1988 Ford E-250 Econoline. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your E-250 Econoline’s engine. They're designed to help your engine start easier and run more efficiently, so you can enjoy improved fuel economy and lower emissions. When you take your car for regular engine tune-ups as recommended by Ford, you invest in your E-250 Econoline's long-term health and engine performance.

Engine Tune-Up for Ford E-250 Econoline

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Ford E-250 Econoline engine tune-up services. The standard Firestone Tune-Up is one service option. This includes the installation of new spark plugs and a visual inspection of your engine’s components, plus a lifetime warranty on parts*. A second service option replaces the air and fuel filter in your E-250 Econoline. Our third service is a thorough cleaning of the fuel system. During this type of tune-up, we use a three-step process to get rid of harmful varnish, dirt, and carbon deposit buildup in your E-250 Econoline’s fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Here’s something to remember when choosing services: the mileage and service history of your E-250 Econoline can determine what kind of service it needs. A one-size-fits-all engine tune-up procedure doesn’t necessarily exist. Talk to a technician about your driving style, mileage, and service history to learn more about your vehicle's specific needs.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 1988 Ford E-250 Econolines

  • What happens if my Ford E-250 Econoline spark plugs fail? Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so. Spark plugs are small but mighty. The spark of electricity that the plug emits across a small gap creates the ignition for the combustion needed to start your car. Without that spark, your car won't start.
  • What should I do if I see leaks under my E-250 Econoline? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Ford E-250 Econoline. It could signal a coolant leak, brake fluid leak, or an oil leak. Let any one of these leaks linger and it could cause engine damage.
  • Are some driving habits better for my Ford E-250 Econoline engine than others? You can make your driving habits more engine-friendly. Hard starts and stops can increase the stress on engine parts, especially over many years. Boost your fuel economy and care for your engine by using gradual, smooth starts and stops instead.
