I was wondering if there was anything specific in the mechanics manual for the 996 that says the car should be completely level/flat (eg. 0 degree incline) when doing an oil change. I'm about to do my first DIY oil change on this car since getting it. I'm guess it would be best to have the vehicle completely level, however, that said, I was wondering what the caveats are, if any, to having the vehicle on an incline while I do the oil change. I recently purchased some "rhinoramps" since ramps seemed to be more convenient and practical for my needs vs. jack stands. Obviously one consequence of using ramps is that when I work on the car, it's a bit tilted. I saw some related posts -- users who thought changing their oil on an incline caused some old oil to stay in the engine as they measured by how much new oil they put in the engine after the change -- however, the consensus I took away from that seemed to indicate an incline was ok. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
