Having problems with your 2006 Mitsubishi Colt ?
Service Engine Soon
\015 I bought car 7 years ago brand new and never experinced any problems. However, less than a year ago the "Service Engine" light came on (and stayed on for a few days) then turned off. This tends to happen sporatically. Car never cuts out, lags, etc. Any ideas as to why this particualr light comes on? I have noticed the rpm clock not work like it should when I'm driving vehcile with service engine light is on.\015
With no noticeable change in performance, chances are that the problem is a failing oxygen sensor - which will affect pollution output and possibly cause your car to fail its next safety inspection, and the tach failure indicates a possible cam sensor failure. The only way to tell for certain though is to have the car's computer scanned. Your mechanic can do this (for a price), and many parts stores will run a limited scan at no cost (in the hope of selling you something).
You can have the code checked when its on, but check the fuel cap for integrity
