2013 Ford E-350 Super Duty Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Ford E-350 Super Duty engine? 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 E-350 Super Duty oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to buy special tools and figure out a way to recycle the old oil properly. Having your oil changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Ford E-350 Super Duty exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
