My check engine light comes on after several minutes of running, I reset it with a tool, it puts out code 1443, which may be related to the charcoal canister system.

Can someone confirm what code 1443 is? or tell me where I can get the codes on line?

I checked the solinoid valve between the charcoal canister and the engine, it works OK. The rubber hose going from the valve down to the fender area is in bad shape, but I cant figgure out where the canister is that it connects to.

Can someone tell me where the canister is on a 1996 mustang convertible? (3.8 V6)

Any other suggestions? Thanks in advance,

I think that goes to an electric Air Pump, which may be your problem.

Shoot mustangtk a PM, and he can probably tell you for sure . ..

go to ebay and get the repair manual on cd .

It's well worth the sixteen bucks, and you'll learn more than you ever wanted to know about the EVAP system, which is basically a way to vent fuel vapor from the gas tank to the motor in a closed system that reduces emissions and helps mechanics make their mortgage payments...

Cannister should be in the passenger side fender well (behind the plastic lining). From what I've learned on here, that code is usually fixed by replacing the purge valve.
Somebody please correct me if I'm wrong.
