1996 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 it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change 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. 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-350 Econoline Club Wagon spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look.
