Using their code reader, your local auto parts store will read the code for you for free usually. The service engine soon is directly related to emissions on your car.

I went to my local autozone and an extremely nice guy used the code reader and told me that it could be as the gas cap not being closet tightly or some kind of valve right inside of the gas tank. My gas cap was not closet tightly.

Yes this is a part of what it means along with many other engine codes. My car has 201 codes that the service engine light indicates just to give you an idea.

Actually in Mitsubishi's the "Service Engine Soon" light is the same as a "Check Engine" light in other cars. When Mitsubishi's require an oil change a "Routine Maintenance Required" light comes on. There's your logic.
