i dont think that matters because whenever i take it in they just drain it without waiting for the car to cool down.

Caution! If engine is hot, oil is hotter! depending on your equipment for changing the oil, you might want to wait an hour or so (unless...it's TOOOOO LATE!!)

Yeah, I would let it sit anyway. Engine parts get hot too, especially undercarriage. I heard if you mess with anything while engine is hot, metal warpage can occur. Probably just with the engine, but nonetheless...

I opened that puppy up as soon as i was home from work, put on some surgeons gloves and went to work at it. The oil was hot, but i didn't feel it with the gloves on.

jack it up, open the Hood and undo the underbody plastics, your good.

Don't worry about letting your car run after you put the new oil in it, as soon as the engine is turned over, oil has already saturated the engine head and all parts.
