Upon engine first start up listen for a slight rattling in the front of the engine, if it isn't there engine cold drive it to full operational temp, shut it off for about a minute then restart it and listen again, there have been a few come through my shop with timing chain and oil pump drive chain problems. Maintenance is very crucial on these, check for any sludge build up just inside the oil filler hole, oil leaks, those are the ones i have ran across, there maybe others out there that have more info for you.
