Answerremove the valve cover, remove the head, purchase a high quality gasket (you don't want to have to do this again) and replace the head and valve cover. you'll probably want to replace the valve cover gasket as well, gaskets aren't made to be reused. Make sure to properly torque all bolts to required specs (very important!).

If I were you I would take the head over to a machine shop. Have them check the head for valve wear cam wear rocker arm wear valve guides and valve stems seals in other words rebuild the head. They should also check the deck for flatness. If you were to put the head back on the engine and the flatness ex cease the tolerance allowed you could blow the head gasket. Keep in mind the head is aluminum on a cast iron block. I am sure the head has moved.

To replace the oil pan gasket on the Cavalier you need the tool box to open where it is located. After opening, you can proceed to replace the oil pan gasket.

Just reverse the way you took it off 'except' make sure there's no gasket material left on the seating surface and the gasket is in excellent condition on the valve cover. If you have any doubt replace the gasket. Cheers

It should about 1 hour of labor (~$70) + plus gasket (~$10-25).

4 cylinder: half of hour of work (~$30-40) + the gasket (~$20-30).

You need to remove the head cylinder and replace the gasket. You will need at least to get a good manual if you want to do it on your own.

I believe, you need to replace the thermostat gasket.
