As well as whats been mentioned, I'd be looking at new brake fluid, and replacing the coolant (backflush the rad if you can).

Also check the condition of the hoses, whilst you are there.

I'd then try and gently build up the miles & speeds on it, keeping an eye on how its behaving.

My first reaction would be to say yes, but presumably it passed the smoke test, so its combusting what there is without a problem.

Depends on how much fuel's in the tank, if less than half, I'd top it up with 'fresh' only, if more than half full, I'd add some additive to help it along with some fresh diesel.
