I guess I'm getting old, but for the life of me I can't find the cold fill line on the coolant overflow tank. Can somebody tip me off?

(Which is extremely lame, I was looking at my brother's 3.8L about a week ago and it's plain as day. Also that engine bay is amazingly roomy compared to the tightly-packed 3.6L... but I digress.)

you might need a flashlight to see it the first time but once you know where it is it will reach out and slap in the face.

I removed the bottle and painted the min/max marks with a permanent marker :)
Cold on mine is 1" below max, some like it in the middle.

If you disconnect the hose you can pull it up and out so you can mark it. It just hangs on a slot joint. You won't even have to empty it.

No need to remove the over flow hose. Just lift straight up on the reservoir it has plenty of slack. I just removed my buddy's to work on his steering box.just slides in and out.
