Half way up the site glass from what I've heard. You may have to take the cap off and shine a light in to see.

the fuel cooler is on the drivers side back of the motor. It has a little radiator cap on it. It also has a sight glass on front to see the level of the coolant.

Sorry, wasn't on until just now so I didn't see the other questions until now. It should use pretty much the same Antifreeze you use in the radiator.
