good info on this thread. i'm getting ready to do an oil change and i guess i'll wait a bit so as not to have two oil changes in a row. out of curiosity - did you do a topsider oil change at the oil and filter change step? that's how i do my changes. since i've had the car its oil has only been drained once down below - when i had the head gasket done. don't see any harm in continuing to do what i've been doing since i change the oil hot anyway and anything going thru the filter ought to be still in suspension...
