[size="3"]How often should I change the oil in my 1997 Ford Fiesta 1.25 Zetec-SE if I use Fully-Synthetic 5W30 oil ?

The engine has 77,000 miles on the odometer if that makes any difference.

I'm with fiesta_lad, my car has 103,000 miles (ouch!) so I'll be changing the oil every 6 months, it's good as preventative maintenance really especially when your car starts racking up the miles..

I usually go by the miles, but if it gets over 2 years old, it needs changed even if it hasn't met the millage interval.

I usually change mine every 3,500-4,000 miles, but just wanted to see what you guys thought.

i do mine every 12,500 miles...which is normally every 4 months for me... i also do a full service and get brakes checked out...

i have to say once you know its very easy to do a service on this car...not like my peugeot, which was a real pain in the arse.
