Finally.
Pulled the clutch and DMF.
How is this possible? IT seems to bedste comming out of the little hole next to the screw.

Interesting. Are you for sure that little hole or the hex head beside it? Hoping that hex head and all you need is a new crush washer or oring. At least you know where it's at now.

Let me look on a block tomorrow, but I think that's the main oil gallery plug, not a coolant plug.

The 2 small holes are "open". Tried with a qtip to soak up the coolant and for sure it was open a few centimeters in there. Maybe it is in the V?

I looked over some S85 engine block pics, and as you can see in the attached picture , in the red circle you can spot two small holes on both side of the oil line. It seems to me that they are kind of drain holes. Most likely, coolant would be dripping back somewhere from the thermostat housing or the two connectors to cyl head 1 and cyl head 2, as this would be the place where coolant liquid is present in the V area.

Thermostat leaking up front and running back? I'd pull the plenums and see what's up.

That would be ultra annoying to pull the tranny only to find an unrelated coolant leak on the top side...

Feel for ya!
