Sure wouldn't hurt. Make sure you change the filter as well.

I guess, since you're new to the forum (BTW welcome aboard), you have yet to hear my oil change lecture. Since you opened yourself up for it, here goes. It helps alot to drain your oil when the engine is piping hot, and let it drain as long as possible. Especially after your engine has been exposed to the atmosphere, draining hot and for a long time will get the real crud. The last drops that come out contain the REAL dirt.

I'm an admitted oil change maniac, but I change my oil hot and on Friday night so it can drain overnight. If I didn't normally do that, I believe I would in this case because the crankcase has been open to contamination.

Good luck,
Change oil hot and change oil often.
