Hello,
You need to replace the Thermostat and gasket very quickly as you are damaging the engine when it overheats. Your thermostat is not opening at all preventing the coolant from reaching the engine, cooling it off and sending the now heated coolant into the heater core to keep you warm. The shaking may or may not go away once this is fixed.

Good Luck!

Your heat problem is most likely from a stuck thermostat, replace it and you should get the heat back, the shaking is not very descriptive but i would guess a miss fire that is not related to the heat. if it is over heating it would most likely be from to little coolant/ a leak, or a bad water pump.

Sounds like your head gasket is on the way out or its gone. Have you checked theres coolant in the radiator as that keeps the engine cool and gives you heat inside the vehicle.
If you have let it get really hot and there is no coolant in the radiator then you may find that you have damaged the heads etc and will need to take it to a shop to fully diagnose i can tell you now if that is the case it will not be a cheap fix.

No heat


My 2005 Nissan Sentra 1.8s with 55,000 mi. blows cold air from the heater. Coolant not circulating in engine. Lower hose stays cool to touch. Both heater hoses cold. Changed thermostat - didn't fix it. Coolant not leaking or dirty. None in oil - no oil in radiator. Changed worn water pump belt - pump spins freely with no noise or resistance. Cooling fans come on after warm-up. Temperature gauge stays in normal range then jumps to hot and back again. Coolant good to 10 below - didn't freeze here yet. No other problems or repairs to car. Afraid to drive and make worse. Help!

Heater blowing cold air


My 05 sentra with 79k miles heat will warm up and then get cold after a mile of driving, we have tried to get the air pocket out, the mechanic stated he thought it could be a blown head gasket, another mechanic said it was a bad heater core. Any advice would be appreciated.
