Oil Change

I am in the middle of an oil change, and call me stupid, but I can't seem to find the spot to refill the oil pan. I have drained everything, installed a new filter, and put the oil pan plug back in, but I can't find the location to fill it back up in the engine bay. help?

That is what I thought it was. It just has an "S" on it. From my experiences, the majority of the caps have some sort of oil symbol on it. Its for a 2002 7.3

Maybe the oil cap has been changed at some point in time? lost, and replaced with an aftermarket one
