Hi, I’m Ron and I’ll be helping you today.
Before we get started though, Please understand that I don't know
your skill level or tools you have to assist us. Also understand that
I can't see, smell, hear, or touch the vehicle either, so patience is
appreciated. JA is a great Q/A site, but it does NOT replace a
repair shop.
My goal is to make you happy and get a great rating in return for
my time. Sometimes I have to give you bad news that I know you
didn’t want to hear, so please don’t shoot the messenger.

Here are the instructions for you, it's pretty easy to do.

Thanks, Ron

Expert:  rpmdiag replied 3 months ago.

AT the end of the top radiator hose toward the engine, going into the block.

Thanks again, and please don't forget to rate me and keep this link in case you need me again later on.
