Could be in the ccontron switch module or a bad fuse. With a test light you will need to follow the wires back toward the fuse box to see where you are loosing the connection.

To cause a P0443, there has to be a problem with the purge control CIRCUIT, not necessarily the valve. Usually they are a unit housing the valve and the solenoid as an assembly. Or it could be comprised of a separate solenoid with vacuum lines to a purge valve. That said, it could be any of the following:
  • Bad purge solenoid (internal short or open)
  • Wiring harness chafing or rubbing another component causing short or open on control circuit
  • Connector worn, broken or shorted due to water intrusion
  • Driver circuit inside powertrain control module (PCM) is bad

n the picture, the belt tensioner is circled. Toward the bottom of tensioner, see the square cut out, have to use rachet drive--breakover or something in that cavity, pull tensioner cw to release tension on belt. Sometimes it is hard to pull. Depending on how long the handle on the tool, you may have to use cheater pipe on it? The cut-out maybe be 3/8 or 1/2 inch drive, not positive?

Sounds like you have blown a fuse. Start there. If not, it is possible you have blown the stereo itself.

The reason the catalytic converter is getting that hot is because the engine is running rich. There is too much fuel going into the cylinders and when it is expelled into the exhaust and meets the oxygen there, it heats up. Check to be sure that there is no airflow issues into the manifold and that there is no problem with the injection or the timing. Also be advised that overheating the cat like that can cause a fire and destroy the car.

Service engine soon ? Do you mean SERVICE VEHICLE SOON Indicator
The amber SERVICE VEHICLE SOON indicator is an alert to the driver whenever there are specific current codes stored in the BCM or in the event of a loss of Class 2 serial data.

If your vehicle has a check engine light ,it doesn't have service engine soon .One or the other .

Aftermarket replacement oil filters do arrive in a variety of sizes because aftermarket filters are rarely manufactured for specific applications but chosen from a catalogue containing filters of a wide variety of specifications.
I have been a repairer for many years and mostly aftermarket filters are good value and cause no problems, though there have been a few problems - on one occasion a filter actually fell off. Mostly the problem is with an internal valve that is sometimes fitted into genuine filters to help prevent drain back and replacement filters often don't have that valve and in some cases can result in a shortened engine life. Sometimes dealer parts are better.

Draining oil and refilling isn't a precise science - not all the oil can be removed by draining though a good deal more can be drained if the filter is removed first. A hot engine helps draining but that isn't always convenient or safe so if possible I leave the plug out of a slightly warm engine overnight.

In the old days of pre-CAT engines the general rule was to fill the oil pan (after running for a minute) to the maximum level on the dipstick. These days it is reckoned best to fill midway between the maximum and minimum marks...

You could try searching on google then too see if they have a manual then for the trailer that you had recently bought. Or you could have a person that fixes and repairs RV's and RV trailers then to be able to see what can be done about getting an instruction manual book then.
