I am replacing my head gasket on my 91 Pontiac Sunbird LE. It has a 2.0 L engine. Also, its a convertible(im not sure if the convertible edition is different from the regular) and I am wondering if there is anything I should replace besides the gasket, refilling the oil and coolant after draining, and the bolts that you generally replace. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
While the engine was off, I did an oil change. And frsh oil began running out of the muffler. I did a compression test and they were all low but one was severely low. So, I assume it to be head gasket.

That does not mean a bad head gasket. You need to perform test to confirm what is wrong because replacing the head gasket ight not solve the problem.

What do you suggest I try replacing? Or what test should I try?

Did you try starting?
Was there any overheating issues?
How did fresh oil get to the mufflers?
What were the compression test results?
How much oil did you fill in?
