So, I'm about to go attack this stupid leak for the third time. I don't need to drain the oil for this, right? I just did an oil change less than 50 miles ago and really don't want to waste all that shiny synthetic.

It takes the parts, and puts them in the bucket. Then it cleans the parts until oil-free, then it sprays the parts with brake cleaner until really oil free.

You shouldn't have to drain the oil. You'll lose some, but most will stay in the crankcase, the filter is higher.
