I'm not sure what you are asking but a blown head gasket can cause oil and antifreeze to mix together in the oiling system and/or the cooling system. but just because a head gasket blows, that doesn't guarantee this symptom. you can blow a head gasket and the coolant never makes it to the oiling system
