im a geezer so non detergent oil is something i remember very well. When high detergent oil first became available older engines then, i.e. 50,000miles or less was considered a almost worn out engine ,they had a inch of sludge in the pan and anywhere it could stick. So detergent oil would loosen up the sludge and plug oil passages and cause real issues. All that history suggest to me that modern high detergent oil will hold particles in suspension so other than warm oil will flow out better not much need for concern about getting particles out before they sink to bottom of the pan. IMHO.
