I would agree with this.  Fluke made a battery powered hand held scope that would be really good for this purpose.

I am not quite sure what it is they you hope to learn from this, but you can
find used Tektronics or Agilent oscilloscopes on ebay or ValueTronics. They
have refurbished models in the $2,100 range and used ones in the
several-hundred dollar range. These all run the hundred MHz range which is
way faster than you will ever need.

I?ve always wanted to get an oscilloscope as I feel it can be a handy tool
in diagnosing engine running problems, especially with newer fuel injected
cars, as the various sensors and controls aren?t simply on or off switches
but pulse at very high rates.

Obviously the more channels the unit has, the better (although cost goes up
considerably with each channel added). My question is, what minimum
frequency should the unit be capable of measuring in order to evaluate say,
a fuel injector or ignition coil circuit at near max RPM? 10,000Hz?
