10-12000 mls or annually is the usual reccomendation for oil change and service.New cars are often 20000mls or annual. As I only do about about 6500 a year it gets changed after about 18mnths.Synthetic oil has a somewhat sticky consistency, more important what colour is the oil? If its black then it does need changing.

well....you are shortening the life of your engine cosiderably..all that keeps the moving parts` in operating condition is the oils condition.......as it gets contaminated by the by products of petrol it turns acidic and starts to eat away at the critical bearings and wear surfaces inside the engine....it is best to change it often...as soon as it goes dark in colour is a good guide. ...and change the filter as well!!

You actually may want to change the oil twice. Give it about 1000 miles and do it again. It will help flush some of the goo.
