Overview of Essential Ford E-250 Econoline Maintenance Needs

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1989 Ford E-250 Econoline for factory-recommended routine maintenance and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. A Courtesy Check helps "set the stage" for your service and catch any small problems before they turn into big repairs. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your E-250 Econoline's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1989 Ford E-250 Econoline? If your current battery is more than three years old, it may be time for a replacement (batteries typically last somewhere between three and five years). Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall life expectancy of your Ford E-250 Econoline battery. It can be tempting to try and get as much life out of your battery as possible, but it’s smart to check it regularly and replace it before it gets too weak. Otherwise, you may find yourself (and your trusty E-250 Econoline) stuck in the middle of nowhere. Your Ford E-250 Econoline won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1989 Ford E-250 Econoline engine. See Ford's recommendations for oil change intervals for your 1989 E-250 Econoline in the chart at the top of this page. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Talk to a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to know when to change your oil.

If you skip recommended Ford E-250 Econoline services, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally.

Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Ford E-250 Econoline cooling, heating, and climate control system.
