Alright so here we go I noticed that my 4runner was starting to run a little warm the past few days and decided that it was time to look into the cooling system a little bit. My 4runner is an 86 22-re
I have since replaced the following:
All radiator hoses
and lastly head gasket.
I replaced all the of the parts in that order after diagnosing that they were of no help keeping the engine cool. After replacing the head gasket I had the head professionally machined and completely gone through and rebuilt. I have put all the parts back together set the timing and now it will not idle. I have to keep giving it just a little throttle to keep it to where it wants to idle. I didn't take anything off or disconnect anything other than what was needed to take the intake off in order for me to complete the head gasket project. The engine will rev like no other now and is very strong since the rebuild but as I have stated it will not idle it just chokes itself out. Any help would be greatly appreciated I am just confused as to what would be the cause of this as I have never heard of this problem. Thanks in advance!
