Will it be a problem?

Hey my name is Jens, 17 years old and living in Holland. This saturday i will be checking out two older defenders, one of them has quit a bit of kilometers and i was wondering if anyone knows if i can expect a lot of trouble with the engine? The car has 388.992 km on it and the engine is an 2.5 tdi from the year 1997

And if there is anything else i should check with a little older defender?

I hope that someone could answer my questions!

Hope i'll be posting pics of my new ride soon
I would love to drive one of those fine cars!

Greetz! Jens

If it's made it that far it's probably been reasonably well looked after!
