check engine light is on...

Hi

Yesterday the check engine light came on in my 2009 Borrego
and tonight, it turned off

I checked it both this morning and after the check engine light
went out tonight and with both tests my code reader gave me
the following codes:

$7E8: Engine - 5 codes
P0171 $07E8
1/5 Generic System too Lean Bank 1

2/5 B Camshaft position timing over retarded Bank 1

3/5 B Camshaft position timing over retarded Bank 2

4/5 System too lean Bank 1

5/5 B Camshaft position timing over advanced or system performance
Bank 1

$7E9: A/T - 1 code

Can anyone on this forum tell what is wrong with my Borrego and if
this is a typical issue?

Thanks

Thanks HavasuPaPa

If I understand this correctly I just have to drive the car until the condition
clears itself; is this your interpretation also?

Not sure what the DTC is but I am guessing that this is something associated with the
KIA scantool...

The check engine light on my dash is no longer lit and all I have is a generic scantool
that might not display DTC Readiness flags. Should I just clear these with my scantool?

Thanks again

DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Codes). Your scan tool should read the codes the same as a Kia tool. I only sent the information so you can see what components may be causing the codes to appear. As you said, try the driving cycles they suggest:
Accelerate and decelerate more than 10 times within 5 minutes. Repeat a second time.
