I have a very small oil leak and looks like its coming out of this hole circled in red. Does anyone know what is this for?

Not sure, but it looks like it's been blocked off with a freeze plug. If that's the case, try tightening it and see if that solves the problem. If not, drain the engine oil and coolant, remove the plug, clean it and the hole, reinstall to manufacturer's torque specs, and refill the oil and coolant.

that’s an oil gallery. it’s plugged here because a lot of manufacturers will use the same engine or the same short block for different cars or engine configurations. if you’re having a leak the hole needs to be re sealed.

The thread is 6 months old, and the OP hasn’t been back to the forum in 4 months. He won’t see your description of the problem.....
