Default antifreeze in oil

a couple weeks ago when i changed my t-stat there was some spillage on to the intake and calve covers so i tried to soak it up but some i couldnt get at so i just drove it around hoping it would burn it up. do u think that any of it would have seeped through the gaskets or got in the oil? should I shange my oil?

Shouldn't be toooo much of a big deal, but to be safe, change the oil....couldn't hurt. IMO, maybe the gurus will correct me

There is no way that any coolant can get thru your calve cover gasket and into your oil unless you can see noticable oil leakage around it. I wouldnt be worried about it.

What if tho? lets say it did happen? how much coolant leak into the engine would determine the need for an oil change?
