ok

excessive crankcase pressure usually comes from bad piston rings. the way you can tell is to have a wet and dry compression test performed to verify.

a head gasket would make the car overheat and coolant in the engine oil

you need to have the compression test done to verify. too much crankcase pressure will force oil out the gaskets

Well before this happened when I would turn the engine off I would get the smell of oil burning and some smoke like oil leaking onto the engine passenger side of engine
Mazda Mechanic: roybelding, ASE Master Tech replied 6 months ago

probably oil hitting on something hot on the motor.
