Learn About Vital Maintenance Needs for Your Ford E-250 Econoline

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1996 Ford E-250 Econoline and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. During a Courtesy Check, we’ll always check your battery, then we’ll move on to inspect your E-250 Econoline’s head and tail lights, tires, fluid levels, alignment, and windshield wipers.

Maybe it's time to find a new auto battery for your 1996 Ford E-250 Econoline. In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your E-250 Econoline may need a replacement battery sooner. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the 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. If you keep driving on a battery that can't hold a charge, you run the risk of being stranded when your battery finally gives out (and no one can predict where that might be!). 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.

Ensuring you always have a well-charged battery can help your car’s overall performance, and regularly scheduled oil changes can support your engine’s overall performance and keep your 1996 Ford E-250 Econoline running newer, longer. Reference the chart toward the top of the page if you're not sure about the optimal oil change intervals for your 1996 E-250 Econoline. Keep in mind that your oil change interval could be different given your driving style and climate. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. Not sure what type of oil to use for your 1996 Ford E-250 Econoline? We can help with that, too!
