Tune-Ups to Help Your Ford E-250 Econoline Run Better

Is your engine overdue for a tune-up? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, now is the time to work on that habit, especially if you want your 1998 Ford E-250 Econoline’s engine to last for a long time. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your E-250 Econoline. Tune-ups help your engine start smoothly and run efficiently, which can mean better fuel economy (a win for you) and lower emissions (a win for the environment). When you get routine engine tune-ups based on Ford's recommendations, you invest in your E-250 Econoline's long-term health and engine performance.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Ford E-250 Econoline

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 1998 Ford E-250 Econoline. One option is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. This includes the installation of new spark plugs and a visual inspection of your engine’s components, plus a lifetime warranty on parts*. Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your E-250 Econoline. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air filter. Yet another service is a fuel system cleaning process, which involves removing varnish, dirt, and carbon deposits that have built up inside the fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate in your E-250 Econoline. This goes a long way in boosting your fuel system’s overall performance. Keep in mind that your E-250 Econoline's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs. A one-size-fits-all engine tune-up procedure doesn’t necessarily exist. Chat with a Firestone technician before you jump into a specific service to ensure your engine tune-up money is well-spent.

Questions About 1998 Ford E-250 Econoline Engine Tune-Ups

  • What happens if my Ford E-250 Econoline spark plugs fail? When it’s time to replace the spark plugs, don’t delay. These small (but vital!) parts provide the electric spark that your car needs in order to start, and old spark plugs can prevent your car from starting at all. Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so.
  • What does a puddle underneath my Ford E-250 Econoline mean? Puddles could indicate that your vehicle is leaking coolant, oil, or brake fluid. Ignoring these leaks can lead to permanent engine damage, so address these symptoms ASAP with a tune-up service.
  • Are hard starts and stops bad for my Ford E-250 Econoline engine? Hard stops and starts can lead to premature wear on your engine’s components. Lighten up that lead foot and opt for steady, fluid starts and stops instead. Your engine (and your passengers!) will thank you.
