Code p1443 is a malfunction in the evap system. It can be a loose gas cap, a bad flow sensor/circuit, a bad evap solenoid/circuit or even a leak in the evap system. The evap system is designed to trap gas fumes escaping from your gas tank/fuel system contributing to pollution. Code 1443 can be fixed by replacing the canister purge selinoid. The cost range is from $47 to $65 if your Ford dealership will match Internet pricing. The dealership is the only place to purchase the item. The location is passenger side of engine near A/C condensor. It has 2 air lines connecting at the top and a plug with 3 wires at the bottom. The size is roughly 3 inches in circumfrance, by 4 inches long. It releases air and that's why the check engine light comes on related to the emission system. Once you find the location the part takes less than 5 minutes to replace . You still will have to get the check engine light code deleted from whomever. Autozone will do it for free.

No, low gas cannot cause a Check Engine light to turn on. There would have to be a problem within the engine or the engine wiring for that light to come on.

I had my check engine light come on in my 96 T'bird and I stopped at Autozone to get it checked. I got the P1443 error as well, and it said probable causes were: 1. Failed EVAP pressure sensor 2. Blocked hose between purge valve and FTP sensor 3. EVAP purge valve stuck closed I have read from others that say it could be just a cracked hose as well.

A defective thermostat can cause the engine to overheat. It can also cause the engine to not reach full operating temperature if the thermostat is stuck open. It is possible this could set the check engine light.
