It’s best to get a brake check before your Ford E-250 Econoline shows signs of brake troubles. We offer free brake inspections as a benefit to all of our customers so that we can help prevent problems from starting in the first place. You can request a free brake inspection at any time or during another service, like a tire repair or 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, vibration or pulsation in the pedal or steering wheel, a burning smell near your tires, an illuminated brake dashboard light, or a gut feeling that something’s not right. You know your Ford E-250 Econoline better than anyone else. A free brake check can help keep your system performing well. 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? Stop at your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for a quick inspection. Most of our locations are open seven days a week and in the evening for free brake checks. Our expert technicians are happy to examine your 1988 Ford E-250 Econoline brakes, brake pads, and other braking components. Proper brake maintenance is key to preventing problems in the first place.
How often should you change your 1988 Ford E-250 Econoline’s brake pads? It largely depends on where and how you drive. In general, brake pads last from 30,000 to 40,000 miles. Certain factors, like driving mostly on highways and braking smoothly, can help your brake pads last longer. Alternatively, riding the brakes and hauling heavy loads can shorten their useful life. 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? Not all brake pads are created equally. Some materials last longer. Luckily, Firestone Complete Auto Care offers Ford E-250 Econoline brake pad replacements, coupons on brake services, and a limited Lifetime Parts Warranty on brake pads. Brake checks and brake pad replacements are pretty common for us, and we only use brake parts that meet or exceed 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’re experiencing squeaky brakes or a loss of braking power, don’t wait! Unresponsive brakes make it tough to give the road your best. What's more, waiting for things to figure themselves out can result in more damage to your brakes and your wallet. For example, rotors start to warp and become damaged when completely worn brake pads exceed their lifespan, shortening the life of healthy parts due to the metal on metal grinding that occurs. We can help prevent that damage from happening. Go to your local Firestone Complete Auto Care for 1988 Ford E-250 Econoline brake repairs. We offer many affordable brake repairs like brake pad/shoe replacement, brake rotor/drum refinishing, brake fluid exchange, and brake caliper and wheel cylinder installation.
