Tear it down, and see what's there - as to what's broken. Most interested in what blew?

Friends here in Dallas buy used MB diesels all the time, and going kablooey seems to be the norm, when something's very, very used, cheap, and of questionable repair and maintenance. Sometimes you win big with a very low priced used car with incredibly high-miles and worn, and sometimes not..... Two MB cars of record I could mention right now.....
