First time posting a question to forum: I have owned a '96 fj80 for 5 years In DC area. Maintained it well, and invested in upgrades; regular maintenance at vintage Landcruiser specialist or dealer. Dealer replaced sparkplugs, new distributor, transmission fluid last week. Took it on the road and at around 280 miles of highway driving between 55 and 70 mph, the engine started to get progressively louder, with a butterfly sound on acceleration that grew to a rattle. Within 2-3 miles-- driving between 25-50 mph -- just as I was pulling over, it made a terrible rattling sound. Had it towed to a New Jersey dealer within 1/2 mile. Dealer called and said the engine is broken, maybe a "thrown rod". Should I sell as is? Or try to diagnose the problem? Dealer where I had it serviced said I could have it shipped to them but they are over 100 miles and I even though they said they warranty the work, I wonder if they'll own up to a mistake.
