    why does the engine light stay on in my 2002 kia sportage

    I just bought it and the check engine light is on. How do I find out what is wrong?

    It's telling you there is a potential problem in the engine. Check the oil & coolant levels & if they are OK you will need to go to a Kia dealer or somewhere that you can get a diagnostic service done.Did you buy from a dealer? If so,go back to him & complain.If not,contact the person you bought it from & ask if the car has any history of this problem.You never know,they may volunteer some assistance.Whatever the case,don't just keep driving it with the light on & do nothing about it.It will only end with more problems.Good luck with it.
