bishbosh Posted November 13, 2005 Share Posted November 13, 2005 The Bishtail has been off the road for a while and will be until the New Year. She's due an oil change and I am after some opinions please. Obviously after such a long time standing all the oil will have drained to the sump so would I be better off draining the oil cold which would get potentially more old oil out? The down sides to that are that any sediment will have settled out in the sump and may not come out with the old oil as the flow will be steady and non turbulent. Also, being cold, the oil will be thicker so may leave more behind in the sump. Conversely, starting her up means the sediment gets sent round the engine again so may not come out with the hot oil change...... Answers on a postcard please!
