Ouch - this is more work than I anticipatedFoot in mouth. Are there any shortcuts that would still get the job done?

 

I know to drain the water and crankcase oil and let it drip out for a while and to remove the oil filter.

 

I thought that once this was done the vehicle could be raised to better access the oil cooler.

 

I greatly appreciate your time and response/s.
