Car is over heating. Smoke from the

Engine light is on. Sometimes the red
electric light comes on. I can't tell if
there is a leak in the coolant system?

Sounds like you have a coolant leak for sure. But where is it going? Is the smoke white? Dose the engine lope? Have you done a compression test yet? You have some homework to do.
