SOURCE: where is the pcv valve in a 1997 ford escort wagon

If you look at your valve cover its at the back on the right, it comes up and then its an elbow, it comes over the top of the valve cover then down. the PCV valve is either the elbow or the piece in front of the valve cover after the elbow.

Looking from the front of the car, start at the thermostat housing (where the top radiator hose goes) and go down from there. Located right next to the exhaust mannifold you'll see the hose going to the PCV valve.

Ford escort wagon 1997 code p1443 displayed. what does this indicate & where is the cannister? thank you.

P1443 - EVAP Control System / Vacuum System Purge Control Solenoid Or Purge Control Valve Fault. A fuel tank pressure change greater than minus (-) 7 inches of water in 30 seconds occurred with a purge (fuel vapor) flow at less than 0.02 pounds per minute.

Possible Causes:
  • Blocked fuel vapor hose between the EVAP canister purge valve and the FTP sensor.
  • Blocked fuel vapor hose between the EVAP canister purge valve and the engine intake manifold.
  • Blocked vacuum hose between the EVAP canister purge valve solenoid and the engine intake manifold.
  • EVAP canister purge valve stuck closed (mechanically).

  • Possible Solution:
    Check for blockages between the fuel tank, the EVAP canister purge valve, and the engine intake manifold. Check for obstructions in the EVAP canister purge valve diaphragm and ports.

    The canister is on the passengers side near the firewall if I recall correctly.

    I have a 97 EscortLX wagon with trouble code p1443. Whats it mean &how can I fix it?

    P1443 DIFINTION:

    I know what the problem is. I had the same thing and replaced the EECS Purge Valve and it fixed the problem. The valve is only available from Ford. I have not had the problem come back since. I have also heard that you should check the hoses to make sure there are no cracks in them on that line. The valve is located in a tray near the gas tank next to the evaporative emissions carbon canister, the canister is black plastic and has hoses going to it
