Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1998 Ford E-250 Econoline 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.

Could your 1998 Ford E-250 Econoline be ready for a new battery? 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). Depending on the climate where you live and your habits while driving, your E-250 Econoline may need a replacement battery sooner. 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. 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 could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

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 1998 Ford E-250 Econoline running newer, longer.
