I purchased a new 2017 CMAX last year(2017). It now has over 9000 miles, and I have not had an oil change. I have been waiting for an Oil Change indication on the dash, but have not seen any. What should I be looking for?

Assuming they haven't changed it, when you start the car the left side informational display will pop up with an oil change reminder -- and it should pop up every time you start the car until it is reset.

 

It should show up after about one year or 10,000 miles since the last time it was reset.

If you got the oil changed at a dealer, they should have reset it though sometimes that can get left undone.  Not having it reset did happen to me once from a dealer oil change.  If you got it done at a non-Ford dealer I wouldn't bet that it was reset but there may be a sticker on the windshield or door indicating when the oil change was done and at what mileage.  My understanding is that the oil indicator comes on to allow the oil to be changed once a  year or every 10000 MILES or less if a lot of stop and go driving.

Instructions for resetting it are in the manual.  Crazy sequence involving holding both pedals down - I have to look it up every time.

Yeah; 10K miles is more like 16.7K kilometers, but a year is always a year. Adding it up, you're pushing 15K Km at 10 months, so it's probably distance triggering it.

 

I get my oil analyzed, at 10K changes, so look for a thread. At least one high-mileage member is using extended intervals. I just sent in a sample, so I can tell you the oil reset procedure:

- turn on/push and hold button for 2 sec.  

- press both pedals and hold for "in process" then a long wait, then "completed" messages.

 

Have fun,

Frank
