You dont, if the xtal is in doubt replace it - cheap insurance.

You are probably using the wrong type of crystal, Futaba has type 7 and type 9 for fm, single conversion and dual conversion

I believe there are ways to test if the crystal is still sendind signals on the frequency it's supposed to send but I don't know who has them. The guy from my LHS told me this, he has a 'machine' like that. I'm not sure about this though. Maybe someone else could confirm this??
