it depends on your driving habits- if you drive alot of miles, every 3-5000 miles, if you don't drive as much, twice a year or so.

yup, RIchard is on the money! I have a Tribute which is the same as the Escape and change every 5K with Motorcraft Semi synth 5W-30.

It depends on what oil you're using. If you're using conventional never go more than 3,000 miles. If you're using a synthetic blend, every 5,000 miles. If you're using a true full synthetic it's between 10,000 and 15,000 miles. The oil you're using will specify the change interval.
