I change the thermostat each time I change (drain and flush)  the coolant.  If you are going thru the hassle of draining the coolant, might as well change the thermostat.  Thermostats are cheap (less than $20) and easy to access.  Just remember to buy the RTV liquid gasket material to seal the connection between the thermostat and housing.  
Recommend you buy either a Haines or Chiltons manual (or similar book).  They are great resources and give you step by step instructions on how to do this and a thousand other jobs on your car.  You will be surprised how much money you can save by doing these simple jobs yourself (not to mention the satisfaction).
Good luck.

I have a 1995 nissan altima.I changed the motor on it twice .The third motor I got from a 2000 altima ,same motor different year. Anyhow when running the motor,if I plug in the fan switch the fans will not...

You have quite a situation. It sounds as though the Coolant Temperature Sensor is faulty. That sensor will control the temp gauge in the dash as well as control the cooling fans when necessary. As to why the fans are constantly running whether the switch is on or not would mean that there is power to the fans bypassing switch, possibly from another connection in the harness. First off I would try replacing the fan relay, it may be stuck closed, just switch it out with another of the same type connection from the fuse box to see if there is any change. If that doesn't work then I would check to see if the wiring from the coolant temp sensor and the fan switch run through the same area of the harness. Its possible that you may have a short circuit at that point. That may possibly explain why the gauge is reading hot when the motor in fact is not. Hope this helps. Good Luck.

The temperature guage on my 2000 Nissan Altima has quit working. Would it be the engine coolant sending unit?

Locate the temp switch in the engine bay, if its a single wire just earth it and see if your gauge moves. If it does then get a new switch.

Nissan Altima no cool air blowing or hot air blowing

It appears we have an Air lock scenario and you will need to perform a system Bleed.
Park the vehicle on level ground, when cold remove coolant filler cap, start engine and leave to idle, turn heater on full and blower to max. When engine reaches operating temperature watch and listen near coolant filler, keep clear as gurgling and hopefully a boil over should occur. Top up with very warm coolant and wait as it may do it again.
Check for heat inside vehicle if warm replace coolant cap but keep an eye on temperature gauge as the ~Air lock may have moved on from heater matrix/core so proceedure needs to be carried out again from COLD.

No fan on and engine hot 95 Nissan Altima

for the fans check the ect, engine coolant temperature sensor. located on the thermostat housin, this tells your computer when the temperature is at 228 degrees f which turns on your fan. if the gauge is reading hot it could be either the temperature sensor on the radiator or you have an after market radiator cap(checkers, autozone, pep boys) whatever but the dealer cap will make the temp. read right. the tach is gonna be your crank sensor or cam sensor and your shift codes should be your tranny sensor, not the shift nuetral safety switch.
