Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2000 mitsubishi galant, and when I was driving home from work yesterday the
service engine soon light came on.  I don't have the manual.  What do I do?

Get an oil change. That light does not mean anything is wrong with your car, it triggered by mileage as a reminder for oil changes and routine maintenance, such as rotate tires. It should not be confused with CEL Check Engine Light
