A code 33 should be fir the MAP (Manifild Absolute Pressure) Sensor. The most common problem is cracked or broken vacumn lines. Check them first. May have to change MAP Sensor which is a simple job

Got missing problem which was fixed after injection coil and one spark plug rusted by water was cleaned but the missing reappears at high speed in my toyota corolla 2003 1.8E. how can i fix it?

These days an engine light mostly should be turned off using either a code reader or a scanner. Some might still turn themselves off when the fault is fixed but that facility tends to be related more to the old days when shorting a couple of obd socket pins would cause the engine light to blink out the codes. In those days disconnecting the battery used to clear the codes and reset the defaults.

Knowing why the engine light is on would be a helpful clue to what sort of things to test and maybe repair or replace and for that a code read is the best way, though a code should never be considered a repair instruction.
Best practice is basics first. A thorough visual check of the engine compartment and ensure the routine maintenance is up to date and competently completed. You know the coil and spark plug has been giving trouble so revisit those items, all of them, for further checking and testing the spark power and quality.

Once you are satisfied all is in order, clear the code and roadtest. If the light comes back on you will need to delve further...

Iscv 33

There is a digital stepper motor installed in the idle air control valve and it is operated by the ecm after taking all the outputs from various sensors.
Check engine light error code 33. The idle air control valve circuit open or shorted to ground. There could be three possibilities which can trigger this code and the check engine light comes on.
1. Check the wiring harness for open circuit or short to ground. Check the idle speed control valve connector for looseness,corrosion of poor contacts. Jiggle the harness at various places to find any damaged wire.
2. Idle speed control valve defective. (replace. Merely replacing the electronic part of the valve can also solve the problem)
3. ECM defective. (replace)

If you mean the "Check Engine" light, your car's onboard computer has detected an error in one of the car's systems. When this happens, the Check Engine light illuminates and the computer sets and stores an error (DTC) code that can be read and interpreted by attaching a code scanner. Most larger auto parts stores have these scanners available for use at their location, and many will even read and interpret the code(s) for you (they ARE in the business of selling auto parts, right?) Good luck.

Check engine light flashes and stays on .

You need to get a scanner hooked up to see what error the computer has found. It will give a code. Some auto parts chain stores will do this for free.

Check engine light just came on. Oil ok. could it be caused by a dirty filter?

The check engine light is triggered by trouble codes which means something is wrong with the emmissions systen, transmission, motor sensors etc. A dirty oil filter will not trigger a code. You need to scan the car with an OBDII scanner to get the codes. Once oyu have the codes post them here and we can help you. If you don't have a scanner you can take the car to your local auto parts store, they'll scan for free and give you the codes.

How can i check for error codes?

There is no built in way of checking codes without the use of a scantool.
There are several low priced but very basic scanners available at auto parts stores, ranging from $25-75 for basic scanning..

Many auto parts stores will scan your codes for you free of charge (in hopes of selling parts).
AutoZone, Advance Auto Parts, and O'Reilly are 3 stores that offer free check engine light scanning.
