Yes to the above and if you are able to, an oil analysis could potentially tell you about the internal condition of the engine. AAA used to offer this service at select locations but I do not know if they still do it.

Maybe the easiest way would be to ask if you can have a look at the service history on the vehicle. If the owner cares at all about the car he/she would have had all the major services done and have records. Saves you having to get yourself dirty. Or PPI is a good option. Take it to a service shop that you have used befor and get them to give it a once over. Cost a bit but saves you from buying a caffed motor.
