Check out transmission with usual.. burnt fluid, color, smell, has the trans been replaced? Check manifold bolt for replacement or missing, if they are then the truck has seen high EGT's. Check for motor blow-by by placing motor oil fill cap upside down on the VC hole and make sure it doesnt blow it off with pressure, a little vapor/smoke is ok. If u have aviablility to a scanner like a snap on MT2500 or auto engunity take it with you to check high pressure oil pressure, duty cycles, and do an injector contibution test and buzz test. If not just check for excessive smoke on start. Check for exhaust leaks on up pipes in back of engine on the manifolds to the turbo. (No deal braker, just a bagin chip). If u want to take some tools with ya, remove the orange boot to the turbo and check for turbo shaft play. It will have a little as they are oil bearings, but the blades should never touch the housing.check to see the condition of the compresser wheel too. (Again no deal breaker) check for oil leaks and fuel leaks in the valley and in the rear of the engine.... prolly missing stuff but thats a start
