I will be extremely honest in my answer to this question, look it up online or go to a dealer. Hope you had insurance coverage. I have honestly never heard of the engine catching fire from the speed control (i am guessing you mean the cruise control?) considering it is mostly mechanical, but I don't know on the older models.
