C-max Energi plug-in hybrid Maintenance Info

From the Owner’s Manual, Ford has some basic information on how to keep your C-max Energi performing well for years to come:

C-MAX Energi plug-in hybrid vehicles are equipped with the
Intelligent Oil-Life Monitor (IOLM) system which shows a message in
the information display at the proper oil change service interval; this
interval may be up to two years or 20000 miles (32000 kilometers).
When ENGINE OIL CHANGE DUE or OIL CHANGE REQUIRED appears
in the information display, it’s time for an oil change; the oil change must
be done within two weeks or 500 miles (800 kilometers) of the ENGINE
OIL CHANGE DUE or OIL CHANGE REQUIRED message appearing. The
Intelligent Oil-Life Monitor must be reset after each oil change. See
Engine oil check in the Maintenance chapter.
If your information display is prematurely reset or becomes inoperative,
you should perform the oil change interval at six months or 5000 miles
(8000 kilometers) from your last oil change. Never exceed two years or
20000 miles (32000 kilometers) between oil change intervals.
Your vehicle is very sophisticated and built with multiple complex
performance systems. Every manufacturer develops these systems using
different specifications and performance features. That is why it is
important to rely upon your dealership to properly diagnose and repair
your vehicle.
