I don't get it...the title says anti-freeze in oil. But the fix was to tighten the temp sensor in the head? That's not possible.

The temp sensor in the head is in what is called a water jacket, it is separated by a steel wall from the oil. Even if you removed the sensor completely and anti-freeze was spewing everywhere, there wouldn't be any in the oil.
