Tune up on 1998 E250 V8 Triton van

35

Asked by Apr 30, 2016 at 09:53 PM about the 1998 Ford E-250 3 Dr STD Econoline Cargo Van Extended

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I am going to do my own tune up on my Ford E250 Econoline van because
I simply can't afford to pay $450.00 for a mechanic so my question is
...what if anything should I pay close attention to and what plugs will work
with the stupid coil packs? Also, I have read that I need a special tool for
this motor? All I have is the standard plug socket and planned on getting
extensions since they are recessed so far down. And will I need to set the
timing? Thanks so much for being there every single time I had a
question/doubt cuz you guys shoot straight and are dead on the money!
Just had to throw that shout out

Oh! One other thing, I'm thinking about running that Seafoam engine
cleaner thru and would like some  input on that as well too. Thnx

Anything with your year and engine should be good. Btw, seafoam is a great product, I would go ahead with the tuneup first, then if the vehicle isn't running right you have a baseline by eliminating that first.

also Valerie, I will warn you it is really easy to break off the spark plugs in those ford engines when you remove them.

This engine isn't prone to plug breakage, It takes normal plugs.
