2010 workshop manuals good for 2013?

Hey there,

Thought someone here may know...I have a 2013 E350 RB passenger van, and I'm curious if the 2010 workshop manuals and wiring diagram will be accurate for my 2013. As far as I know there were no major changes between those years, and the last big one was a steering upgrade in 2009. Any help is appreciated?

I've bought a few OEM EVTM's and have found for the most part those are compatible across a few years either way. There will be "division years" where things change somewhat dramatically where they might not be usable. Going from '96- '97 would be one instance. Another might be when RSC was added (not sure when that was first offered.)

Most chassis past '09 should be very similar so your year spread would be worth the investment.

If you're not in a huge hurry I'd create an eBay search with notifications for your specific year, jump on the first good deal if its in the budget. Get the printed versions only because CD-ROM OEM manuals have expiration dates which makes using them a bit of a hassle. (Someone will know how to "cheat" that embedded coding but its not me. )

HTH

Thank you, from reading it sounds like the RSC was in play by 2006 at the latest. I decided to pick them up as the price was right. Thanks for the info

I have 2011 and 2013 wiring manuals and there are no differences I have found yet (and mine are getting very well used for my Cummins swap). I also have a 2010 wiring harness torn down to almost nothing too and it is no different than the brand new harness I got from Ford.

Perfect. That makes me feel much better!
