Most people dismiss a scope because they either don't use it enough to fully understand the capabilities or they never had one. You can change a flat tire with a tire iron or an impact wrench. Either will work. It is about working smarter. Not harder. You would be amazed the info that can be gathered from a scope if you really get in to it. Do some studying before you purchase. You probably want an automotive diagnostic sxope minimum. It needs to have the inductive pickup so you can see the complete ignition trace. Lesser scopes are OK but useful after you have a theory of where the problem is. An ignition trace is loaded with information and you need an inductive pickup to get that.
