If your coolant level is up to the seam of the bottle and the light is still on then the first thing I would check is the back up light fuse in your under hood fuse box see if its blown. If it is blown it will make that light stand on. If its not blown then unplug the coolant level switch in the bottom of the coolant bottle jump the two terminals on the harness together then cycle the key start it up see if the light goes out you have a bad coolant bottle. As far as the running goes a bad coolant temp sensor can cause overheating surging high idles no starts hard starts dieing while driving all kinds of different symptoms you could have any number of these symptoms just one or more then one. Again I would start with reading the codes. Follow the instructions I posted and let me know the code numbers you get. If the low coolant light flashes while retriving codes then get those codes from that light also those will be your transmission codes. Let me know what you find.
