There should be a drain on a lower coolant pipe or a drain tap on the block.  drain some out and test it.

There is a petcock inside the coolant door to check level.

This petcock may be unusable, mine is, but you can stick an AF checker down into the expansion tank.

If you can't reach the coolant through the fill neck the coolant level is too low.
