In a "Nut Shell":
Purchase a top end gasket set for your engine, open the hood, disconnect the battery, remove intake components (filter, breather, linkages, fuel line, manifold, etc...), remove valve cover, remove head bolts in a cross pattern, take head to machine shop to have head resurfaced, clean mating surface on block, install new head gasket and reverse order to reassemble.
Otherwise, for more specific/accurate instruction get a good shop manual for your engine.

SOURCE: 99 deville head gasket leak?
A head gasket leak is usually indicated (among other things) by continous overheating of the motor, and subsequent loss of coolant.
It can also be indicated by the presence of engine combustion gas bubbles in the coolant resevoir.
Ensure the coolant system has no external leaks, such as faulty hose/s, radiator etc.
Ensure motor tune or other motor mechanical condition is not the cause of overheating.
I assume the motor is actually running hot.
Check cooling fans are operating ok (as necessary when car warms up):- if not check
2) relay operation,
3) heat sensor switch.
Check/replace the thermostat,
Check the coolant pressure cap is serviceable & of correct rating,
Ensure cooling system is correctly filled, bleed off any airlocks as necessary when re-filling,
Ensure radiator hose on suction side of waterpump is not collapsing at engine revs above idle (due softening),
If the motor has been severely overheated, the head gasket could be blown - look for combustion gas bubbles in the coolant resevoir.

It could be a flap but more likely you have a air trapped in the heater core or the hoses connecting the heater core when refilled the system after your repair.
Loosen the supply hose that go to the heater core at the highest point and run engine until coolant comes out.

Check this information for 1999 FORD TRUCK F350 SUPER DUTY P/U 4WD 5.4L EFI 8CYL and keep in mind that cylinder head bolts must be replaced with new ones. They are torque-to-yield designed and cannot be reused.
Tighten the cylinder head bolts in the sequence shown in three steps, as follows:
