Question about Tata Cars & Trucks
If by the red light comes on upon cold startup, and the coolant level is fine, and it hasn't had time to get hot for said red light to indicate hot, then it's a stuck sending unit. If it always reads hot, the computer won't put it in cold start mode because it thinks the engine is already warmed up. That's the way it works. And especially if it isn't pushing any coolant from the radiator and over filling the reservoir, then it isn't over heating. IF it is overheating, I would first check that the fans are working properly and if they are, then I would go to the thermostat. And THAT means getting your hands dirty. You have to drain the coolant down just below the thermostat level, unbolt the thermostat housing, replace the thermostat and gasket and put it back together. The re-fill the radiator and reservoir with what you drained out.

bleed all the air out the system by running the car with the cap off untill the water starts flowing out the radiator then put the cap back on. or you may hav put the theromostat in the wrong way.

Are your cooling fans working? that will definately be a problem if not working. if they are working shut car off and feel the radiator is it the same temp all over or is it hot in only top or one smaller area. if you do not have same temp feeling on all of radiator your radiator may be plugged.
