My 89 Toyota pick up was running great right after I had made new keys for it and it had sat for 2 weeks before I drove it again, I let it warm up awile since it sat for a little while and drove it drove home great. Then I came to town and the engine began to bog down and sounded like it was missing and then I heard the rod knock only when barely touching the acceleration. Now it will not start and has when it turns over black smoke comes from the exhaust. I checked underneath and noticed oil by the rear main seal but that was all I could find wrong. What else should I do, I thought maybe the rod bearings maybe bad also but not sure?
