Ford recommends having your 2003 Ford E-250’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. Check out mileage and month info for your E-250 in the above table. Outside of Ford-recommended oil change intervals, your E-250 may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds 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, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Ford E-250. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

2003 Ford E-250 Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Ford E-250? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your E-250’s engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Ford E-250 oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. 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 it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Ford E-250 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
