Need Help, Check engine light not allowing remote start to work

Recommended Posts

Hi all,



I know there are quite a bit of folks here with better knowledge than I. I have a '15 Sport that keeps giving me a check engine light, scan the code and it comes up a P144A.



I can reset the code, and it seems fine for a few days then the light comes back on. Every now and then , the light disappears on it's own, but it's back now.



Automatic start doesnt work because of the check engine light. Which is becoming annoying as it's getting to be freezing temps here in Detroit.




Anyone else having this issue?

Thanks. That looks easy enough. I guess my stupid question would be do you know where that thing is on a 2.7? Attached to the throttle body somewhere?

Seems pretty early for a purge valve failure on a 15. How many miles do you have on it. The valve may be on the firewall, or in the engine valley close to the intake manifold, like on the 3.5 ecoboost. Fordparts.com should have a diagram showing location. SNMJim might have a manual he can look it up in?

I checked fordparts.com, they have a schematic, but it only shows a breakdown of the evap can, the lines, etc... Nothing showing placement. I pulled the part (or at least what I think is the right part) and the picture isn't even close. Looks like 2 hoses, with power plug on 1 end, tee on the other where 2 lines plug into and them some kind of knuckle looking thing.

 

I have almost 70k on this thing. I drive the sh** out of it.PV967__ra_p.jpg

Did you resolve this issue? My 2015 Sport with 24k miles just threw this code and I'm looking to fix ASAP. Don't want to wait for a service appointment if the cost isn't much.
