Nevermind, got it. Needed my girlfriend to fit in the tight space to get some actual pressure on the two little tabs. Not exactly a lot of room down there LOL

Also for the record, that cutting of the plastic...took forever! Holy chit I must have dull kitchen and exacto knives!

On your radiator there will be a silver knob, do not open if you been driving the truck around and just stopped to open it, wait for the engine to be cold, or do this in the morning before you use the truck. push down and turn counter clockwise on the silver metal cap, remove the cap and smell the preston, if it stinks like shit, then you have the rubber tube issue, if it smells sweet and well sort of normal, then your good. When you put the cap back on, tighten it and make sure it is sealed back to where it was or your going to have prestone all over the place the next time you use your truck, the cooling system when hot becomes pressurized.

Radiator cap looks like this
