There should be a radiator cap on top of the radiator. The radiator cap is where you would refill the radiator with the recommended coolant for your vehicle. To remove the radiator cap, push down and turn counter-clockwise at the same time. To install the radiator cap, push down and turn clock-wise at the same time.
