Ive never thought too highly about sucking the oil out the dipstick tube. Use the drain plug, then any gunk in the oil will flush out with it.

My cars have always been too low for ramps, so rather than jack it up and screw with stands, sometimes I just drive it up onto a couple 2x6s and that gives enough clearance to get under it to change the oil.
