A head gasket that leaks or seeps in any way will require the cylinder head to be removed in order to properly fix the leak. In the case of your Chevy Malibu, I would recommend enlisting the assistance of a certified mechanic, like one from YourMechanic, to come by and confirm the seeps and leaks of your head gasket and engine oil. They will have the experience needed to address your leaks and seeps as well as perform the repairs needed to get your Chevy running leak free.
