might be looking at a 05 what should i look for ?

i might be looking at a 2005 liberty with 179,000 miles on it . I've seen a lot of them with motors blown or bad head gaskets I'm new to the site and was just wondering if I look at this what should I look for ? I always check fluids etc when I look at rigs but didn't know if theres anything I should check for on these 3.7 motors . I had a 02 for 3yrs and never had much problems but the brakes . Thanks for any info you can pass on .

Head gasket. I had an 02 that blew the gasket at about 230,000 miles. Now I've got an 05 CRD with 185,000 and still going strong. Love that diesel torque.

That's what ive heard with these motors . I finally got a hold of the guy that has it and found that it needs both cv shafts and has a bit of rust on the tailgate also will need new rotors and pads he's asking 1,600 for it and is pretty firm on the price . he's been trying to sell it for about a month now and did come down 200 I think ill give him a little time see if he comes down a little more if not ill just keep looking . I mist a good deal on a CRD a day late ! Thanks
