As with most engines, you will often find oil around the outside below the intake. You may also realize that you are running out of coolant a lot. this is caused by the cooling jackets inside the engine breaching the head gasket and leaking into the combustion cylinder. Start easy. Open your engine oil cap and see if you find any gross whitish slime on the inside of the cap itself. If so that usually means that you are getting coolant (moisture) in your oil. This is bad. coolant gets sticky when cooked in your engine. the friction will restrict the pistons and create more heat. You will eventually notice your engine running warmer than it should (although overheating can be a symptom of many different problems). If you don't notice any of these symptoms you may, as the problem gets worse notice a rough idle from air leaking into the system or the James Bond style plume of white smoke behind you on the road as leaking oil drips onto your exhaust .
The head gasket on a 1999 Chevy Malibu is replaced by removing the coolant, intake manifold, and retaining bolts. The cylinder head can then be removed, the gasket replaced, and everything reassembled.

Intake manifold gasket
don't fix it!.. buy new head gasket is much better. In valve cover, just put gasket maker or silicon gasket maker.
It is between $65-$85 for the gaskets.
A bad cylinder head gasket.
I'm sorry but i actually have a 99 Malibu and they do have a intake manifold gasket which are commonly mistaken for a head gasket when it blows. Mailbu's 97 to 2000 are bad for them blowing. it is located on top of the engine. it's still very expensive **tamnesha Some Chevy engines of that period didn't have a gasket; just a thin film of sealant.
