Take care of your Ford E-350 Econoline and it'll take care of you. With proactive maintenance, your E-350 Econoline has a good chance of hitting 200,000 miles or more. So, you want to care for your car, but you’re not sure when to get certain services. It can be overwhelming, but fortunately, there’s a resource that takes the guesswork out of routine E-350 Econoline maintenance. Rely on the recommended maintenance schedule that’s been created just for your 1984 Ford E-350 Econoline!
The recommended maintenance schedule is put together by Ford, your vehicle manufacturer.

Keeping up with routine service appointments is a great way to keep your E-350 Econoline running for longer, increase your vehicle safety, and help you avoid expensive repairs caused by 1984 Ford E-350 Econoline problems later.
Head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care in your 1984 Ford E-350 Econoline for factory-recommended routine maintenance and a skilled technician will start the appointment with a Courtesy Check. This Courtesy Check can establish a baseline of what may need to be addressed during your service appointment. Each Courtesy Check includes a free battery test and an inspection of your E-350 Econoline's windshield wiper blades, head and tail lights, filters, fluid levels, tires, and alignment.
Think you could be due for a new battery in your 1984 Ford E-350 Econoline? In general, car batteries only last three to five years. Yours may need to be replaced sooner depending on your driving habits and climate. Taking short trips or exposing your car to extreme temperatures (like in the dead of winter or heat of summer) could reduce the life expectancy of your Ford E-350 Econoline battery. Sure, you could wait until your battery is completely dead, but it’s a much wiser decision to replace it before you need to. Otherwise, your battery could die unexpectedly, leaving you and your E-350 Econoline stranded. Your Ford E-350 Econoline won’t even be able to start with a weak battery, much less get you where you need to go.
