You will need an ohm meter. Take each lead of the ohm meter, one on each side of the capacitor. If the needle of the ohm meter jumps up and then immediately back down, the capacitor is good.

If the needle stays all the way over and doesn't go back down, the capacitor is shorted.

If the needle doesn't do anything, the capacitor is open.

If you visually look at the capacitor, and there is oil leaking or the capacitor is bloated or pregnant it is shorted.

If it is open or shorted you will have to change it.
