This is a kids vehicle and she doesn't even drive it so not worth the $1800 engines online. My local junkyard has no Aveos so I'm looking for a direct swap that isn't in the compatibility database.
There are a lot of Cruze and a 2012 Sonic. They are 1.8L. I'm a Honda guy so really unsure here but that's probably all same fit with little higher deck height.
Think it's just $350 to pick an engine so that would be lot better than trying to do the head gasket on this one near 200k just to find more problems.
