Default Blown Head Gasket or Worse?

I am looking for a way forward from anyone who can help. I have a 2002 Ram 1500 with a 4.7 V8. I have been loosing coolant lately.... not a lot but enough. Still the truck was running great. Last several weeks a P1294 code has begun to show up. A few days after that I noticed coolant and emulsified oil in the vacuum lines and the air inlet box and evidence of the same in the throttle body. Last night the truck overheated and stalled. I got it cooled down and milked it home.. well almost... about a mile to go it had enough and I had to call AAA.

So Im about to start troubleshooting a blown head gasket but is there anything else it can be? Can the coolant be coming from anywhere else? like the heater box/core?

thanks in advance
