When draining the oil, if the truck has been sitting for a couple days, is it better to run the engine up to temp first or just drain it while everything has obeyed the law of gravity and made it's way into the pan? I know hot oil flows out better, but it seems silly to pump all that oil up into the engine just to heat it up and wait for it to drain back down.

Personally, I don't see much difference in the end. Thoughts?

running the engine just before draining, then replacing the oil prevents dry-starts. On an old engine with lots of miles, this could mean the prevention of a spun bearing.

I would imagine a hot stirred up engine would also make sure the oil pan and any soot related sludge/solids would end up draining clean also.
