SOURCE: Cold Start Idle Issue

Problem might be the air control valve, it's located at the right side rear of intake manifold and has a hose going to the air intake duct from the air cleaner, as a test you might try pinching off that hose when the idle is a problem.

I've had mine blow twice on the EFI 3.0 engine. Toyota came with a beefed up gasket. Make sure that is the one they are using.

The only way pressure can build up in the radiator is for combustion gasses to leak into the cooling system. This is usualy from a blown head gasket, a cracked cylinder head or a porous block. These things should have been checked for when the engine was rebuilt. Assuming it was done by an engine reconditioning service.

Is it fuel injected? Or carburated?
If it has a carb, did you clean out the float bowels and jets?
If it's injected, you may need to clean or replace the injector nozzles.
Fuel that has been sitting for 2 years can turn to varnish.

And after you replaced the head gaskets, did you do a compression check on the motor?
