Service engine light on 2000 Mitsubishi Galant came on. I have a little under a 1/2 tank of gas. It suddenly started choking about 5 months ago periodically when i press the gas pedal then later that afternoon the check engine light came on. Already Tried: Clean the fuel line. Change oil. Put premium gas.
