Check the bottom of the radiator for damage. The coolant light will go on when the fluid level drops too low. Check the reservoir and add as necessary.

"Engine Coolant Temperature" sensor.

The gasket is between the head and the manifold and simply remove the bolts and replace the gasket after cleaning it real good.

Check to see if coolant is mixing with engine oil. Run engine to normal operating temperature and remove oil dipstick, let a drop of fluid fall onto a hot part of engine, oil will smoke and coolant will sizzle. If coolant is into engine oil could be a sign of a bad head gasket If fluid level is correct, but still overheating, could be: Thermostat is not opening Water pump not circulating coolant Cooling fan not working
