Anyone else missing this screw?

So I was doing my 2000 mile oil change this morning when I noticed what looked like a missing screw near the oil filter in the oil pan case. Check out the picture attached. If any of you are under your cars anytime soon, could you take a peek and see if yours is missing as well?

I just tried to crawl under there. I don't have ramps anymore. Not much room and I'm slightly claustrophobic so I could not get that far under. I'm betting it was used for moving it when the engine was built. The motorheads on here will be able to answer.

I would expect since this block is used in many GM products from trucks to Cadillacs it is for a bracket mount for one of the other vehicles.

Don't worry your not missing anything. There are random bolt holes on the sides of every block I have ever seen. Probably used for something at the factory or like Timberline said mounting brackets for another model.

Every block has holes in it. I assure you nothing goes there. There is nothing missing. Maybe someone at a casting facility can chime in? Possibly for an engine stand at the factory?

thats where the flux capacitor mounts to the motor.





seriously tho, as said above, you arent missing anything. engines have come with "empty" holes for years to be swapped in different cars/trucks etc and for different accessories as well

Haha, I wasn't trying to cause the latest "panic de jour" as Scott liked to call it. If it's typical for commonly used blocks to be missing screws in certain applications, that's a good enough explanation for me.

yes I noticed nothing in that hole too, I figured no big deal and did not think anything was missing. I suspected what others have posted, or is was a hole used for a bolt while installing the motor.

Just don't forget to set your date and time when you hit 88 miles per hour. Oh yeah, and the 1.21 jigawatts octane fuel!
