Re: how to replace coolant?

That is the sort of problem that gives an opportunity to excel.

In past I have parked with wheels on pavement so I can get enough room in the gutter to access underneath.
Or reverse back wheels onto bricks, wood blocks and jack front enough for access.
Or run front onto blocks for access then jack rear end to level.

A decent Jack and set of axle stands are something you are going to need if you intend to work on your own cars.
Investment opportunity
