I am now totally stumped and confused Scotty

I am now totally stumped and confused Scotty, I have no clue on which way to go about checking the compression and fuel pump without using gauges on a used car.

From the vid you made on this you suggested instead of getting an expensive graph DMM you picked up an inexpensive meter which did a good job.

You even put the links to the meter and amp prob that you used in the vid under the video

Now you suggested when you replied back that to get the expensive one that you use. (Just curious which one do you use?)

That vid you made is not old only five moths old. What changed?

See why I am totally confused.

I’m a FIY…DIY person I have really know knowledge on this type of stuff that’s why I’m seeking advice from a professional like yourself.

“Please help me” tell me how to check the compression and fuel pump when buying any used car because at this point, I have no clue on how to do this and what to use now...."Please be specific".

As for the Scanner I see that is probably a lot more advanced stuff that i don't need on what I listed so forget about the and what ever else.

recommend what to do and cost
Read entire vehicles history of fault codes if possible
Cancel out cylinders
Cancel Injectors

A scanner for a person like me FIY…DIY which inexpensive decent make/model scanners between say $200 – $300 would be appropriate for what I do?

Please help me.

Thank you for your time,advice, and help!!!

s I tried using it over time and gave inaccurate results. Sadly I've had to use my $1500 oscilloscope scope to do serious analysis. The sad truth is the pin point accuracy that's needed only exists on the Expense machines. You can toil around with really cheap ones OK for some basic analysis's but serious stuff thdy don't work good enough
