- compression test
- leakdown test
- inspect oil
- inspect for broken sensors
- inspect oil pickup
- check plugs (inspect)
- look for oil gumming in valvetrain
- ask for regualr maintence records

Ask about the warrenty and what's covered if buying from a reputable shop that stands behind thier product.

check for leaks....... that's one more things

but any motors, you seriously won't know until you driven it for like a few weeks... then problem starts to surface...
