    you will know if the turbo is gone or on the way out usually the oil seals go and the engine will burn oil leading to hell of alot of smoke comming from the exhaust get someone to stand behind it to check when you strike it up but it should be obvious other than that do the head gasket check for looking for "mayo" under the oil cap
