Post 2.2L4 chevy question

I have a 1994 cavalier with a inline 4 2.2, it only has 69,000 miles on it, but it sprung a leak. Looking at the engine from the front of the car, the right corner from in between the head and the block is barely leaking coolant. The car still runs fine. I was thinking the head gasket could be the culprit. What is the proper way to fix this? I was thinking of taking off the head, having it checked for cracks and straightness, and putting it back on with a new head gasket if it is good. ( it may need some minor milling ) thanks

I heard it's not that uncommon for those engines to develope head gasket problems. It's an OHV engine so it shouldn't be too difficult to R&R the head gasket. Any reputable machine shop should be able to check the head for you.

I have a 1990 cavy sitting in my driveway with a blown head gasket. only thing is mine has 175,000 miles on it unlike yours. I would look over the head and try putting a new gasket on. Cant hurt to try.
