1983 Ford E-350 Econoline Oil Change Q&A

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Ford E-350 Econoline? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your E-350 Econoline’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • How hard is it to change Ford E-350 Econoline oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might 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-350 Econoline 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, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
