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.

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.

No, You don't put anything on Head, Exahust or intake gaskets. CJ actually you do put a 1/8'th inch bead of black silicone on the gasket to ensure no leaks occur and it also helps hold the gasket in place when your putting the intake manifold on. I'm a ford master technician, you ALWAYS use silicone when replacing intake and head gaskets. =DK
