If the motor can turn via a starter:
run compression test
visually inspect the valve train
smell the fuel for strong gas smell
check main seal
inspect head for cracks
If motor cannot turn via starter:
get a wrench and turn it over to run a compression test
continue on list above
Run the serials to see if they match 2.0 should start with GA
try to look for signs of leaks (they're there, it's a 914 motor)
Hope this helps
