Hi everybody! My Astra is a Sreg-98. Had it for couple of years now with no problems - well, exhaust man.gasket started to speak... otherwise really fine.
Trouble started a few months ago, when the engine was cuting off after a few seconds /minutes and it would not start until ...later, when the engine was cool - at least this is how I see it (in case was on for long enough to warm up...) Now the engine would not start at all.
On a "paper clip" test...code 0443(10.4.4.3) - P0443 - Evaporative Emission Control System Purge Control Valve Circuit - malfunction! - info from my friend .
Disconnected the battery hoping the code 0443 will clear. It didn't. Forgot to say: for a few times, when it first started, the code did not (re)apear.
Opened the .. Haynes3758 @ 4B.1, but it shows a 4spanners symbol..
Would anyone know how to deal with this? I'll try to clean the hoses from the purge valve (Haynes); afraid of messing with the charcoal canister (Haynes, 4B.1). Many thanks!
