F150 radiator cap - where is it?

This is going to sound like a silly question - but where is the radiator cap
on a 1999 F150 5.4 engine?
I've noticed a slow radiator fluid leak on the ground, and I want to put
some stop leak in the rad. The fluid instructions say not to put in the
overflow tank. The overflow tank has a cap, but I can't find a cap for
the radiator itself.

That's the only cap.

I would never add stop leak to my radiator. Find the problem and fix it
correctly. Stop leak will stop up everything.

Re: F150 radiator cap - where is it?

If you drive an old car and you want to buy time, Bar's Leak can help.
It can stop a tiny radiator leak for a year at a time. Nothing works
much for heater cores. Eventually, you have to fix the leak. ( I have
never had anything stop up from using it regularly though.)
With a nice vehicle that new I would certainly diagnose the problem and
fix it right. Maybe you just have a hose end leak in which case the
stop leak product is not going to help anyway. Disgnose first and fix.

Just fix the leak and don't ruin the vehicle with stop leak.

You put another can of stop leak in every year? Eventually you'll have all
stop leak, right?
