I cannot find the radiator cap on my '99 Ford Tuarus to save my life! I know where the resevior is and I believe I've been told I don't even have a readiator cap but something tells me there has to be one. Am I wrong?

Thanks!

Coolant is added through the plastic bottle on the right fender
has a cap on it its a turn type and not like the old radiator lock type
Its under pressure do not open if engine hot
coolant will BURN you
