    checking an engine

    hallo to all of you guys.
    i have a sort of tech question. if you can help on this it would be great.
    found a donor c5 1998 ls1 motor for my jeep swap. is there any way how i should check if its ok or not.
    the engine can be run to hear but i do not know much.
    how about the millages or if somethink will go wrong after the swap?
    which are the spots i should look better ?


    thanks in advance

    No Smoke, No Blow-by, if it's clean inside, buy it ! While it's out, I'd install ARP rod bolts, and 918 beehive valve springs. They are the weak points of this motor.

    Be sure to pull the oil dipstick and check for any signs of water, also check the coolant for signs of oil. An overall visual examination should be made to determine if the engine has any leaks or any repairs to the block have been made. Pull the spark plugs to examine as well.

    Those would be my suggestions as well as what was mentioned.
