I believe he is looking for a diagnostics scanner

If thats the case you want to take a look at the auto-enginuity

turns over about 15 to 20 times then start fireing for about another 10-15 turns and then runs roughhhhh with the extra loud diesel tap. also stutters alittle under engine strain, like when getting on it to get to highway speed. its a manual shift...

, sorry about that!

A friend of mine uses the Matco brand handheld scanner and is very pleased with it...it'll do all the reading and data logging you need and it also has updatable diagnostic programs that run everything from simple on/off tests to full system operations and results. down side is I think you have to by it from Matco or an authorized dealer, like a tool truck.
