Hey, new owner here. Liking the truck so far, but need to get a crash course on what is normal / abnormal with Rangers and such.
First question: How much condensation is typical from the A/C? I get a puddle about 1-2ft in diameter when I park (after which point it stops dripping) after driving 20min with the A/C on about 2 bars up from max cold in 85 degree weather. I'm pretty sure it's just water, as I've checked, but the puddle is much larger than any of my other vehicles (all sportscars/sedans).
Second (and more important) question: I've got a P1443 code showing that I've had reset and comes back within 10 min. It was there when I bought the truck, but I got them to sign documents stating they would fix any issues stemming from the code. I normally would walk regardless, but the code doesn't seem too bad since it's something I've had before on most of my cars (loose gas cap most of the time, never expensive). Considering it's a 18 year old truck, perfection is not to be expected lol. It runs great though.
Evaporative Emission Purge
Obviously the evap/emission purge isn't a huge problem, but the valve malfunction result might be. Of course, the code doesn't specify which of them it is, just that it's one of the two. Anyone have experience with the P1443 code?
