    Changing oil after storage

    Before my car was stored for winter the oil was changed. It has been in underground heated parking for about 6 months. Curious what everyones thoughts are about possible degrading of the oil. should i change it again when it gets taken out of storage? What are your thoughts or possible experiences.

    I would start it, let it idle until you get some kind of temp into the car and go drive it around for a while until its hot. Then proceed to do a hot dump, get as much of the oil out as you can. Removing the filter first before you drain the pan helps too.
