Electroytic capacitors rarely short, they mostly just lose capacitance until they read a few pf. That will not read as a short, rather it will read open, just like a functioning capacitor, so without a cap meter, you cannot tell much on small value capacitors. You can sometimes watch them charge up and discharge on the ohms scale of your multimeter if they are not too small a value.
