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?
