Oil Change Q&A for Your 1986 Ford E-350 Econoline

  • What can low oil do to my Ford E-350 Econoline engine? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If your oil runs low, these components can grind against each other, generate excess heat, and cause your Ford E-350 Econoline engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Ford E-350 Econoline oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of 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? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
