View Full Version : quick question about oil

04-06-2010, 08:11 PM
so my car has sat since December and I am going to bring it back out and am changing the oil. I was planning on just draining without starting it. I am wondering is this alright, I don't know what oil does after sitting for long periods of time and I usually run the car then drain it for better flow, just thought this would be easier since it is all settled, any thoughts?

Go for a drive & get the oil up to normal operating temp.

It will drain out better (along with any crap in it).

gotcha, I just wasn't sure if particles would stay in if it was changed without being driven
