Just for future reference just in case someone has this same problem. It is located next to the battery compartment by the firewall.
I recently changed my oil cooler gasket and had to bleed my coolant system. It was really a PITA, but it was also my first time. I had enough of it so I bought a Lisle 24610 Spill-Free Funnel kit. I must say, this really helped because you can actually see it work! Every time I would rev the motor, the person watching it, told me that they could see lots of small to big air bubbles. After 30 mins I felt better knowing I did my part. I did have to top off my coolant the next morning which I checked because I truly believe you need to drive the car with the heater on and off constantly (normal driving) to get all the air out of the system. I will do this procedure again to make sure all the little air bubbles are out. Also I believe system has a way of working out the small air bubbles so be sure to keep an eye on it for a week or so. I have listed below the kit which I bought for $38 at O'Reillys Auto Part. I wanted it same day so I paid extra vs buying it off ebay for around $25.
