If you're no newb to D engines, you should know the answer to the question you just asked.

Disassemble and clean with hot, soapy water. Check the valves. You might want to replace the valve stem seals if you pull the head apart. Check the valve seats. Check the cam journals, rockers and cam for wear. Check for flatness of the deck. Reassemble. Install.

If you can get it checked for free great, otherwise checking yourself is an iffy situation if you do not have the proper tools ie. a bit of tin.

If you are going to check it yourself, first check your straight edge using this method;

find a flat surface, (a thick plate of glass or similar)
tape a sheet of paper to the surface on all four corners, (the paper must be flat against the surface)
find a sharp pencil, sharp enough that it will draw a line thinner than the words I am typing.
lay the straight edge on the paper and hold it down, I can't stress this enough, the straight edge can't move at all!
draw a line with the point touching exactly where the straight edge intersects the paper, use even pressure, if the lead on your pencil breaks start over.
once the line is drawn, without lifting the straight edge rotate it counter clockwise 180 degrees, then align the same edge you used as a guide to draw the line with the line.
again draw a line with the pencil over the first line.

if you come away with a single line great, if there is a place anywhere along the line where you see two lines your straight edge is not in fact straight. You have now checked one of four edges that most steel rules have, do the other three.
