Conventional oil 3000-3500 miles
Synthetic oil as printed on the oil bottles.
It does have some bonus properties, reduced wear, longer life. and as long as it meets minimum standards is more than acceptable for warranty.

I jusy purchased a 2008 honda accord with no owners manuel.The car has 19,000. miles.The oil life states its at 100%. My question is do I get an oil change?

100% indicates the oil is new, or at least the oil life meter has been reset. It counts down as it gets closer to oil change time.

I have a 2009 Ford Escape XLT. I had an oil change at 1500 miles and have since driven 275 miles since the oil change. I have an oil change advisory allumination notification on the dash now. How do I...

This is how it works on my 2010 Escape. There are 3 buttons to the lower left of your steering column (Info, Setup, and Reset):
1) when it's displaying the "oil change required" message, hit the "reset" button to get rid of the message2) then hit the "Setup" button twice and you'll see the "oil life" screen, which is now at "0%". It tells you what to do next (i.e. "hold reset" until it says 100%).

When do I change the transmission fluid in my 2003 Highlander?

If the fluid smells burnt or is black, replace fluid. Manufacturer suggests that you inspect it at every 30,000 mile interval. I would suggest having it flushed every 75,000 miles as a normal maintenence.
