Q: Check Engine Light Code on 1996 Isuzu Trooper

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
My check engine light just came on. It is code P1442. Just wondering if someone could shed some light onto this. Also, My car has been running a little hotter than usual. I had to replace my heater core and water pump this past winter. It fixed the problem with running hot, but it recently just started to start happening again.
