Its to the inside of the driverside head. Remove the alternator and you can get to it.

My temp gage jumps to Hot when I go to turn on my truck after driving it for a while. As soon as I get the truck going the gage drops to normal temp. Any suggestions what it might be? Thanks

Chaats, check coolant level. Sounds like low coolant or bad thermostat.
