Question about 2000 Ford Taurus
The Evaporative Emission Control System monitors the fuel vapor flow between the engine intake manifold and the EVAP canister. The system failure occurs when a leak or blockage between the intake manifold, the EVAP canister purge valve and the EVAP canister is detected by the PCM.
Code P1443 Possible Causes:
- Pinched, blocked or plugged fuel vapor tubes/hoses (except between fuel tank and EVAP canister)
- Damaged EVAP canister
- Disconnected, cracked or cut fuel vapor tubes/hoses (except between fuel tank and EVAP canister)
- Damaged EVAP canister purge valve
Notes: Check for audible vacuum noise in the engine compartment or significant fuel odor in the engine compartment or near the EVAP canister.
On my '98 4x4, the cannister purge valve is located under the hood, mounted on the driver's side fender.
The EVAP cannister itself is located underneath the truck, in back, between the spare tire and the truck bed (have to remove the spare to get at it).
If it were me I would hold off on replacing parts...I'd drive around some more first, making sure that I don't overfill the gas tank or run it dry and making sure I replace the gas cap properly, etc. If the code returns, then its time to think repairs.
