Engine light

Hey all....i have a 98 impreza L. I keep getting fault code P0440. I had a friend read the code for me and it comes up as Evaporative Emissions Control. It will come on for a while say a week or so then shut off for a while. I was wondering if anyone knows what the problem may be. The car seems to run just fine with no other issues. I want to get this sorted soon because that light is very bright at night...lol.. thanks

Re: Engine light

Might have a problem with the purge valve since that is what the fault code is indicating. If it is faulty can cause the engine to run rich.
