Welcome to the forum Peter, could you possibly get a photo of the hole/vent and post it please.
That would really help us to determine what it might be.

Peter you can add your vehicle information, which will always show up in your posts, by adding it to the *ignature line.
Just click on User CP (in the top left of your screen) and add the vehicle info if you like, (edit signature) it does make it easier.

There is a gasket behind that plate that leaks sometimes. And yes that is where you would add a oil cooler if nesasary and when not using a cooler that plate just flows oil through. The source of that oil leak is most likely the oil pan gasket. The feed and return for the oil filter are right there and often leak with higher mileage LS engines at that spot.
