Overview of Essential Ford E-350 Econoline Maintenance Needs

Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for manufacturer-recommended routine maintenance on your 1996 Ford E-350 Econoline and our technicians will jump right in with a Courtesy Check. The Courtesy Check helps us see what we’re working with under the hood, and allows us to alert you to any potential problems before they worsen. Every Courtesy Check will include a visual inspection of your E-350 Econoline. We’ll check your head and tail lights, fluid levels, filters, tires (and their alignment!), and windshield wiper blades. We’ll also perform a free battery check to determine your battery’s charge level.

Could your 1996 Ford E-350 Econoline be ready for a new battery? Batteries generally need to be replaced every three to five years. There’s a chance you’ll need a replacement sooner, but it depends on the climate in your area as well as your driving habits. Short trips and extreme temperatures can shorten the overall 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 could quickly go from being a trusty ride to a source of stress in a matter of minutes.

In addition to maintaining a strong battery, investing in regular oil changes can prevent premature wear on your 1996 Ford E-350 Econoline engine. To learn how often Ford recommends you have the oil changed in your 1996 E-350 Econoline, check out the information table at the beginning of this page. Don’t forget, though, that weather conditions in your area or your personal driving habits can affect this interval. A Firestone Complete Auto Care technician will be happy to help you determine the best oil change frequency for your car’s needs. We'll also help you understand what type of oil to use for your 1996 Ford E-350 Econoline.

Periodic service to the steering system in your Ford E-350 Econoline can not only ensure a smooth ride; it can also help you maintain control of your car in compromised road conditions. That's important if you plan on taking the road less traveled! Bring your car to Firestone Complete Auto Care, where our technicians can check your car’s steering components and, if necessary, provide Ford E-350 Econoline steering and suspension services including wheel alignment, strut replacement, power steering fluid changes, ball joint lubrication, and wheel bearing replacement. Components within your Ford E-350 Econoline's steering system require regular maintenance.

Without routine Ford E-350 Econoline maintenance, you might find yourself with a hot mess on your hands – quite literally. A damaged A/C system is never fun, and an overheated engine can cause significant issues (like a total car breakdown!). Our technicians have you covered there, too, with the tools and expertise to care for your entire Ford E-350 Econoline cooling, heating, and climate control system. Need a new Ford E-350 Econoline radiator? We’ve got your back. A/C smelling musty? We'll fix it.
