2004 subaru forester: a check engine light with code p1443

This answer was rated:

My 2004 subaru forrester has a check engine light with code p1443. How do I fix this?
Hi code p1443 is an evap system code. It may be a loose gas cap. If that is not the problem the you will need a evap vent control solenoid. Located on the evap canister rt rear under car. Thanks mike

I usually tighten the gas cap 3 or 4 clicks. Could the gas cap be bad?

Is there a way to test the solenoid?

Hi the gas cap could be bad. The majority of the time it is the solenoid. We test it with a scan tool we can go to componet activation to test these type of componets. Mike
