We have a 1998 Subaru Forester S with about 215,000 miles on it.
Our check engine light starting coming on intermittently in the past two weeks. Last night I went down to the O'Reilly Auto parts store where they loan you the code reader for free. So it said the problem is:
P1440 Fuel Tank Pressure System Range / performance no. 1
The car runs great. But at idle one gets an intermittent rough spot in the idle. This has been going on for many months -- possibly a year. But I think maybe it has gotten more noticeable. Would this rough intermittent idle be related to the P1440 code or it is possibly just a coincidence.
Also, I googled this error code and found this information:
- EVAP Purge Control Valve harness is open or shorted
- EVAP Purge Control Valve circuit poor electrical connection
