The only time a check eng light will cause damage is if it is flashing. And since you only have 300 miles to go you should be fine.

You'll need someone with a code reader - scanner.
Most auto parts stores in the USA will scan for free in hopes of selling you a part.

Cruise control light comes on but will not set. as soon as 80km is reached light goes out and will not come on again untill ignition is switched off. Brake lights all working fine. 2009 Kia Sportage...


Well Im hoping that by telling you to check your cruise control wiring and vacuum routing for broken, unplugged wires or vacuum hoses you just might find that a simple vacuum line is in need of attention. good luck

I want to tow a kia sportage can I use a tow dolly


If you have a four wheel drive Sportage, you will destroy your transmission by towing the vehicle with the rear wheels on the road and the engine not running. The problem is that the wheels will spin the transmission, causing wear on it since there is no transmission oil flowing while the vehicle engine is not running. You can, however, remove the rear driveshaft from the Sportage and that will allow you to safely use a tow dolly, since the rear wheels will be free spinning.

Anyone know if you can tow a (2005 kia sportage 4x2 v6 front wheel drive) behind an RV? If so what precautions do I need to know?


Check with your DMV regulations, different states allow different things. You would need to have a towing cable to hook up to it so that the lights in the rear would work with your RV.
I would suggest getting a tower for the vehicle that would keep the front two tires off the ground so that your odometer doesn't rack up miles.
Let me know if this helps.
