How Often to Change 2014 Ford E-250 Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2014 Ford E-250? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Ford recommends having your 2014 Ford E-250’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your E-250 may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, 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, drive in dusty terrain, go off-roading a lot, or go at low speeds on long distance trips. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt 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.

What Type of Oil Does My Ford E-250 Need?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2014 Ford E-250 motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Ford has recommendations as to whether conventional or synthetic oil is the best motor oil for your 2014 E-250. Motor oil helps lubricate the engine’s moving parts, maintain proper engine temperature, and prevent the build-up of harmful substances within the engine. During your oil change service, a technician will change your E-250's oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect the rest of your car’s filters, top-off essential fluids, and perform a courtesy inspection on your entire vehicle. You can drive with confidence knowing that we look out for you and your E-250 by taking into account your driving habits, and the number of miles on your odometer.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2014 Ford E-250

  • What can low oil do to my Ford E-250 engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your E-250’s 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? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil 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 E-250 exhaust smoke grayish or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
