Other than your general stuff, not a lot goes wrong. Check for long cranking on start up when facing up hill. This is casued by fuel leaking back into the tank. Either the leak off pipes are perished and need replacing (Easy job) Or the injector seals need replacing, quite a big job, camshaft out etc. Check for performance on a test drive, there not flying machines, but they shouldn't feel 'flat'. If they feel flat, or there is a total lack of power or the power is pulsing as it acclerates then the air mass meter probably needs replacing, which is about £150+ I think.
