What to Know About 2003 Ford E-250 Scheduled Maintenance

Take care of your Ford E-250 and it'll take care of you. If you put in the effort to keep up with proper maintenance, you could hit 200,000 miles (or beyond!) in your E-250. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. Instead of waiting for an issue to arise with your E-250, you can stay ahead of problems before they even begin. Just follow your 2003 Ford E-250 maintenance schedule!

This recommended maintenance schedule is written by the auto manufacturer, Ford themselves. Driving conditions, climate variations, and other variables can affect which scheduled maintenance services you’ll need; however, recommended maintenance usually includes services like fluid exchanges, filter changes, new brake pads, oil changes, and tire rotations. Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your E-250 running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and prevent common 2003 Ford E-250 problems.

Essential Maintenance to Keep Your Ford E-250 Running Newer, Longer

Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 2003 Ford E-250 for factory-recommended routine maintenance and an expert technician will begin by performing a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your E-250. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Think you could be due for a new battery in your 2003 Ford E-250? 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). There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. 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 battery. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. 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 won't be going anywhere without a strong battery.

Staying on schedule for battery replacements and motor oil changes can help your 2003 Ford E-250's engine run smoother. To learn how often Ford recommends you have the oil changed in your 2003 E-250, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. Come in and speak with a Firestone Complete Auto Care technician to find out how often to change your oil. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 2003 Ford E-250.

  • When should I have Ford E-250 alignment checked? You know your Ford E-250 better than anyone else, so you’ll know if something doesn’t feel right while driving. Have your alignment checked (and adjusted if necessary) as soon as you notice a pulling steering wheel to prevent suspension damage or uneven tire wear.
  • When should I use high mileage oil in my Ford E-250? If your Ford E-250 has ticked past 75,000 miles, consider switching to high mileage oil at your next oil change to give your engine what it needs to go another 75,000 (or more!). High mileage oil: make it a high priority!
  • Can I ignore dashboard lights on my Ford? Don't ignore dashboard warning lights! Bring your Ford E-250 in for a diagnostic code scan as soon as a dashboard warning light flashes on, whether it's your check engine or battery light. Dashboard lights alert you to trouble under the hood.
