1989 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 your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Ford E-250 Econoline engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Ford E-250 Econoline oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Ford E-250 Econoline spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
