Question about 1997 Chevrolet Malibu
One common issue when a shadetree mechanic changes the head gasket is that during the removal of the timing chain/belt and it's corresponding sprockets that the camshaft and crankshaft timing chain/belt sprockets are allowed to turn relative to one another if not properly indexed before reassembly. This causes the valve timing to be quite off once everything is put back together.
Checking to make sure that compression is proper in the engine should resolve whether or not this is your issue.
