My car has 176000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
Trouble code P0443 is for an Evaporative Purge Control Circuit. This system is responsible for carrying fuel vapors from the fuel tank to be burned off during normal driving. This would not cause the vehicle to stall or not crank.
Also, if the vehicle was running then stalled out, the starter would not be at fault for that. The starter will not cause the vehicle to stall.
The most cost-effective way to start is to have a technician, like one from YourMechanic, diagnose the no start condition before replacing any parts. Most auto parts sources will not accept returns on electrical or electronic components.
