Follow top radiator hose to where it enters engine. Should be there. But you don't need to take it out to flush

That's what I thought. I just bought the truck @ a good price, one owner. But man really, you have to take the plantum off to change plugs. Timing cover to change water pump. Not a very friendly DIY engine.

The diesel engine versions are much more friendly.
