Retorquing head bolts should not be necessary if the procedure was done in several steps and in the correct sequence
some GM engines have a head stud into the water jacket and if the stud is moved when retorquing that thread sealant will break and leak water into the sump
all you have to worry about is , was the procedure followed correctly by a qualified operator or some year apprentice on his first job

SOURCE: blown head gasket

I would change both, as well as use new head bolts. Make sure your heads are not warped or cracked, especially the one that is leaking. There may not be any need to change the head if it is not cracked. These are prone to blowing a gasket especially after 150K miles or so. It will not cost a huge additional amount to change both head gaskets since the engine will have to be disassembled down to the heads anyway. Hope this helps you, Rick

SOURCE: How to remove and replace valves on head of 2004

Assuming that you mean the exhaust and /or intake valves.
The first step is to remove the head. For step-by-step instructions, you'll need to get a service manual which includes pictures.
They can be quite beneficial, since they provide instructions for which parts must be removed to get to the head. Your local library can be a great resource, since many libraries have a good supply of manuals for different vehicles.
Once you have the head off, I seriously recommend that you take it to a local machine shop. It will cost you a little more than replacing the heads yourself, but the machine shop can check the condition of the valve guides, springs, seats and the actual valves. Another advantage is that the machine shop can set up the valve clearance to the camshaft.
The machine shop will also test the head to make certain that the surface is perfectly flat. That's important when you're re-installing the head.
Always use new gaskets and follow the torque specifications indicated for your engine.
This is a technical job, and you need to follow the engine specifications if you want the vehicle to perform properly.
Good luck.

2004 aveo timing belt broke, all valves bent


just go to any junk yard and find a used deawoo lanos and pull the head if timing belt was not broke, if it looks good, its a exact fit 100%, no special tools needed, just normal wrench set and torqe wrench. after head is installed, get a gates timing belt only.
