3 engines in 500 mi?, 12/09/2010

I had my '94 Suburban engine rebuilt by Engine Masters in Oct. With approximately 500 miles on the new engine, it blew up (as in rods through the pan) while going down the freeway at 70 MPH. It was... towed back to Yakima at the cost of $500 and a lot of hassles. I removed the engine again, and Engine Masters reluctantly agreed that it was their warrantee issue, and took the engine in for another rebuild. When the new engine was ready (long after the promised date), it was installed by my professional mechanic. This engine too distroyed itself before the vehicle could be backed out of the shop! It completely filled the shop with smoke and started pumping antifreeze out of the tail-pipe, then totally quit. I insisted that Engine Masters take responsibility for this engine, and remove it at their expense this time. By this time I had paid to remove and install the engine twice, plus a $500 towing bill. Now, after a month with the car in Engine Master's possesion, I am being told that someone put diesel in the fuel tank, and THAT is the reason that the engine blew. They now want $500.00 for fixing the engine. So, if you were me, would you pay again? How many miles will it go this time? Who put diesel in the tank? How likely is it that it could run from Yakima to North Bend, and then blow up while traveling down the freeway at 70 MPH, then only last 2 minutes on the next engine? I would not recomend dealing with this company under ANY circumstances.
