Default Blew a headgasket on a 94 Camry 2.2. Head checked out, won't idle?

I blew a head gasket on a 1994 Camry 2.2 ltr. I had the head checked out by a
engine rebuilder. It was off by .30. Had them fix it and I put it back on with
a new timing belt. It won't idle now. I cleaned the idle air control and that
made no difference. Any ideas??

You cleaned it, but did you also test it? I've had some success cleaning
it though I am about to actually change it as cleaning it (at least
cleaning it on the car) doesn't seem to last very long anymore. Now I'll
have a spare that I can clean off the car and be ready.

Check the solenoid coil by following step 2 at

I assume from your description that the engine runs if you hold the
throttle down, it just stalls at idle.

Yes the engine runs fine other than the idle issues. It is better at leaste it
idles now, but it varies from 700 to 1000 rpms.
