As you are looking at the engine from the front, it is at the back left, a little under and inside the rear serpentine belt pullies. It's hard to see, but if you look from the inside, down the back of the motor by the firewall toward the belt pullies, you will be able to find it. It is more difficult to access if with a turbo. No wonder GM is going down the drain.

this picture is helpful. I wanted to add that in my case the cap was greasy and black. I needed to reach down with my left hand and I could feel the flat top of the cap, which is shaped just like the oil cap. Then I wiped it off and unscrewed the cap. Having a long skinny funnel is really helpful.
