Ford recommends changing your 1988 E-350 Econoline Club Wagon’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above.

1988 Ford E-350 Econoline Club Wagon Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Ford E-350 Econoline Club Wagon motor oil level? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and eventually lead to Ford E-350 Econoline Club Wagon engine failure. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Ford E-350 Econoline Club Wagon oil at home? 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 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-350 Econoline Club Wagon exhaust smoke grayish or blue? 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, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
