Question about 1996 Oldsmobile Eighty Eight
If you mean the driver's side, that opening is where the radiator drain plug is located. The drain plug has a O ring that may have gone bad and will need to be replaced. Auto Zone or Napa will have the replacement part needed to stop the leak, and do not add any radiator stop leak. The stop leak will cause a restriction to your heater core and in the winter you may have heating issues.
Thank you for using fixya and good luck with the simple fix.
