I can't really give you any guidance on this without a scan tool to retrieve trouble codes.

I can tell you that the suspension message and the check engine light are almost certainly unrelated to each other, it's likely two different issues, one having to do with the emissions system, the other having to do with the suspension.

You can drive this vehicle normally. The suspension issue usually stems from a problem with the air compressor that levels the rear end, or one of the sensors connected to that system. It does not make the vehicle dangerous to drive. The check engine light is also not a problem, the car has redundant systems, whatever is causing the check engine light to illuminate, the computer can compensate for it and allow the car to run until you can get it serviced.

Don't worry about it, just go ahead and drive it until you can get it to the repair shop.

Please take a moment to rate my answers using the stars at the top of the page, that's how I get compensated. Let me know if you need anything else, I am happy to follow up.
