My 99 Legacy Engine Check Light is on. Code says EVAP fault.
Any ideas please as to usual problems here?

First check to make sure all the lines that make up the evap system are connected and intact.

Check that the purge solenoid is connected and check it's resistance.

That's all I can think of.

Most likely.

As far as I know, there's only one solenoid - it's purpose to vent/purge the evap canister when the ECU tells it to.

Easy as heck to replace.
