SERVICE ENGINE SOON LIGHT

2003 Mitsubishi Eclipse

Engine Mechanical problem
2003 Mitsubishi Eclipse 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic 868997 miles

The " service engine soon" light has come on and I don't believe that you can use a diagnostic code reader on it, as I cannot find anything in any manuels or online about it. I checked all the fluids, which are fine and it sort of feels like its having a harder time switching into second gear, but I'm not positive. Is there anyway I can check what the light means myself?

Hi jac852004,

This is a service reminder which will show after a certain mileage and is no cause for alarm.

Get the service done and resetting it will do the job.

As for the gear changes, you might need to scan the TCM for any error codes. Sometime a change of ATF can do the job.
