1987 Ford E-350 Econoline Club Wagon Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Ford E-350 Econoline Club Wagon? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine.

That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Ford E-350 Econoline Club Wagon oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be.

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-350 Econoline Club Wagon spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
