To locate the low side line, follow the lines from the compressor. Typically, your low side line will be located on the left (as you face the front of the truck). It will have a small cap on it (similar to a valve stem cap on your tires). You may need to remove the air cleaner assembly for better access if the valve is in the back but in most cases, it's located nearer the front of the engine compartment, about 1' back from the radiator.
Well, if your vehicle was equipped with a radiator cap, it would be located on the radiator. However your vehicle does not have one. There is, however a pressure cap located on the coolant reservoir. This information is covered on page #150 in the Owner's Manual. (complete with pictures to show you where it is.)

they have no rad cap...u have to fill it from the coolant bottle located on the passenger side of the car by the strut tower....that is the rad cap..the large hose on the bottom of the bottle runs into the rad filling it
Radiator caps are disappearing form cars. Filling of the coolant is done through the expansion bottle. This should be easily accessible and visible as it has several pipes leading both to the engine block and the radiator. It will have a filler cap on it as well. As with radiators, do not open it when the engine is hot. Only check coolant level on a cold engine.
Usually on Ford automobiles, the low coolant sensor is built into the coolant overflow tank cap. If yours is this way, you can spot the wiring and electrical connector attached to the cap. The sensor looks like a dipstick in the coolant tank.
There won't be a "valve" to put antifreeze in. There will be a radiator overflow tub. This will be located off the side of the engine compartment, near the front corner. (To locate, follow the overflow hose from the radiator cap to the catch tub.) You can replace radiator fluid in there, or in the radiator itself. That should get you some heat.
If you follow the upper radiator hose from the radiatior to the engine, it connects to the thermostat housing. The housing is where the thermostat is located and it is held inplace by a couple of bolts. It is easier to replace the thermostat if you drain most of the coolant out of the radiator. There is a valve on the bottom corner of the radiator. Also, for a few extra bucks, replace the radiator cap to make sure it is functioning properly, since it was over heated.
