If your message center is prematurely reset or becomes inoperative, you should perform the oil change interval at six months or 5,000 miles (8,000 km) from your last oil change.

Ford Motor Company has recommended maintenance intervals for various parts and component systems based upon engineering testing . . and recommends against maintenance schedules that deviate from the scheduled maintenance information.

Cory, your recommendation to change oil at six months or 5K miles IS a deviation from the Owner's Guide 5th Printing which shows the recommended engine oil change interval to be between 7.5k to 10k in normal driving conditions. Is there some other official Ford publication on this subject?
