Key items and oil changes and air filtration. Oil is easy if they have records. Air filtration
needs to really be looked at. Check the filter box to make sure all that tabs are
in place. If the tabs are missing or cracked, that can mean that the lid isnt fitting
correct and dirt has gotten in. Turbo diesels can get "dusted" and ruined in
quick order from dirt getting through. Also, there have been many posts from
folks using oil/gause (K&N) style filters with dusted engines. There are arguement on both sides of this, but I dont think we have seen a properly seated paper filter
dust an engine. So look for what filter they have used.
General vehicle condition cant tell oil changes or air filtration, so look at these. You
might even get an oil sample and send to Blackstone to see what they say
about the engine.
