1996 Ford Ranger CHECK ENGINE light

6 posts in this topic

hey guys i checked the code for the light and it was P1443 Evaporative Emission System Control Valve (low/no flow). Does anyone know what needs to be fixed? Is it the Gas cap?? Any info is very much needed and appreciated. Thanks everyone

That particular code has a totla of 43 steps in order to diagnose. Unless one of the Ford guys chimes in with a known problem you're probably looking at bringing it in.

The gas cap codes are typically a P044? code. The P01443 is a little deeper in the EVAP system than a gas cap.

thanks for the help. Do you know what im looking at? the guy at Checker said gas cap. But I find that hard to belive. Is it a major problem? Can I still make the trip up North?

    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.

    • So I'm finally getting ready to get the boat wet for the first time this year.   I noticed last night the steering wheel is very tough to turn.  I did done research on some older threads on this site containing to my problem.   One tip I read was to check the big nut next to the motor on the steering arm.  Its printed on the nut -caution**tighten.  Some one said that nut should be loose.  Mine was wrenched tight apparently.  Does the warning on the nut mean , make sure its tight or do not wrench tight???  Btw it's a 05' mercury 115 if that makes any difference.   I will also re lube and clean the components also to see if it makes a difference.   Thanks for any input!!

    • I will admit to this :   there are a couple of crystal clear, cold lakes in Yukon,  within a mile or so of my cabin, where you COULD actually eat and enjoy pike. They did not compare to some nice Grayling but  you COULD eat them. I'm not a fish eater unless it is fresh king salmon or kind crab but quite a few folks would eat the pike. And I will admit to enjoying a chunk of walleye now and then so long as it is slathered in hot sauce and I have had 13 double Makers Marks. But hey!.....you fellas enjoy them!
