Your 1998 E-250 Econoline’s oil should be changed according to Ford’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Ford-recommended oil change intervals, your E-250 Econoline may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust.

More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Ford E-250 Econoline. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 1998 Ford E-250 Econoline

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Ford E-250 Econoline? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, engine parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your Ford E-250 Econoline engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Ford oil on my own? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Ford exhaust smoke gray or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
