Well, main things, rust. Check underbody. Easiest to tell if they drive on the beach. And all engine work reciepts.

Engien should be ok if it's diesel, just do the normal checks for oil leaks/other leaks, rust, chassis etc

Yeah I'll go have a look on the weekend and check for the normal things, as long as it's rust free and leak free I'll be happy :)

When its running take the oil filler cap of the timing cover and if it either shoots it into your hand or if you can feel exhaust fumes coming out of it the rings are worn.

 

That's what go on them...
