OVERHEATING OF MY "92"

1992 Toyota Tercel

My " 92" Tercel is still overheating. I have had a new radiator put in and changed the thermostat and I know the fan works. I can't find any leaks in the system either. It only overheats when I am idling. What is wrong with my car? I took it to a local mechanic and he said that the head gasket is blown but I do not find water in the oil or oil in the coolant. Please help.

It sounds like you have an air pocket in the engine. You have to bleed the air out of the coolant system to remove all the air or you will have a hot spot causing it to over heat.

A blown head gasket is the result of over heating.
