    Hmm. I forgot, the L67 was an option later on.

    Behind and below the Alternator. Sometimes the lid gets covered in crud and you really can't see the bright orange writing on it. That was my problem when I first got the Monte. Just reach back there and feel for it. You'll need a long skinny funnel to fill it.

    Make sure to take off the flux capacitor and drain the blinker fluid to 30% before removing the power steering pump or your gonna see some serious shit. You can avoid the Mr Fusion on this one but keep an eye out for it.

    While your down there, check your muffler bearings. And have you switched you tires to winter air?

    man, I had to do the winter air swap on my caddy.....not fun but worth it. Thankfully though my model didn't come with the muffler bearings, I do have an aftermarket muffler cooler running through my organic radiator. Adds 12hp to the wheels
