    Can't seem to find any information about a small hole that is located in the rear of the engine just above the oil pan. It is maybe two to three mm in diameter and looks as if it is supposed to be there but what is it for? Will oil leak from it?

    It's just a drain for the "shelf" below the transmission. Oil seeping from the engines flywheel seal and the transmissions input seal tends to collect there.
