Question about Chevrolet Malibu
The biggest risk is if it is a cracked head or block, rather than a head gasket. Not likely but possible.
Do you plan to repair this yourself, or pay a mechanic? You can get a few estimates from shops you trust. You can do it yourself but it is a lot of work. You will need a repair manual and a good set of tools including a torque wrench. It is too much to explain here, but a manual will give you all the instructions.
When you have the head off, take it to a machine shop to check for warpage (flatness).
