oil pressure and water temp. from what i understand some of those motors have blown headgaskets. besides that listen to the motor. make sure there is no dings or taps! light taps are ok because that is an easy adjustment, if all he says you need is a trans mount don't beat on it home or your tranny will slap around in that tunnel and scare you! i know i did it once ;). beside that look for the normal stuff! o and make sure there is no white smoke coming out of the exhaust, again the head gasket
