Ford recommends having your 1999 Ford E-250 Econoline’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Your E-250 Econoline may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Ford if you regularly haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. 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.

1999 Ford E-250 Econoline Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Ford E-250 Econoline? Engine oil lubricates moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Ford E-250 Econoline engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • How hard is it to change Ford E-250 Econoline oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might 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 also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Ford E-250 Econoline spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, damaged piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
