2012 Ford E-350 Super Duty Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Ford E-350 Super Duty? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil runs low, these parts can grind together, generate excess heat, and cause your E-350 Super Duty’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Ford oil on my own? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Ford exhaust smoke gray 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 caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
