Ford recommends changing your 1990 E-350 Econoline’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your E-350 Econoline may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or notice an unusual amount of exhaust.

In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Ford E-350 Econoline.

1990 Ford E-350 Econoline Oil Change Q&A

  • Should I check my Ford E-350 Econoline motor oil level? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, 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.
  • Can I change my Ford E-350 Econoline oil at home? First off, changing your own oil isn’t as easy as you’d think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Ford E-350 Econoline spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? 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, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
