Start the car up when it is cold and rev the engine up for 30 seconds,loosen up the radiator cap and see if there is pressure there..If there is you probably have a bad head gasket...Caution do not open cap if engine is warm...

My check engine light came on three days ago and it over heated and had no water in it ,

Have a compression test done to ascertain the extent of engine damage. Head gasket---warped head---cracked head-- broken rings etc.. Manufactures put these funny lights in the dash to save you money and you ignore them at your dollar cost.

White smoke comes out during high speed?

Yes,Nissan's are prone to head gaskets going bad,aluminum head,must keep coolant and thermostat changed regulary.check to see if head is warped,use straight edge,if warped must be machined.Your looking at 800 to 1000 at shop.Stay away from dealer.

2003 nissan sentra no heat, over heating

If the engine has overheated, chances are pretty good that you now have a warped or cracked cylinder head and a blown head gasket. Those engines are very unforgiving when it comes to being overheated.

Seem to have the same problem as lindag1003's with my 2001 Sentra. No heat in the car, or heat on passenger but not on driver's. Engine temp guage went above limit. Coolant was bubbling. Mechanic checked...

Parts are cheap for these cars...Problem is that labor is expensive...If you did it yourself it would cost you about 200$...Providing that the deck and the head are not warped...Tolerance is .004. If the car is still in good shape rust wise,has good compression,and not burning alot of oil,it is worth it..My advice is to find a shade tree mechanic to give you a hand ....

Does the 2005 nissan sentra 1.8L have problems with head gasket blowing ?

Not generally, unless the engine's been run hot, if even only for a moment. If the head gasket is blown prepare for major out of pocket expenses because if the engine overheated it will bend every valve and usually warp the head beyond repair. I honestly hope this is not your problem, it's an extremely expensive fix. Hope this helps, good luck!

2003 Cuts off when hot, will not start untill cool

My 2003 nissan sentra would get hot and stall out even in middle of highway doing 70 mph. The guages would go up and down. Would not start up all the time after stalling. had to cool down first. Nissan said it was head gasket, and wanted to charge 1000.00 for the job. I took to local dealer who charged me 550.00. Works fine ever since. Nissan dealer said they do like 3 head gaskets a week on the sentras. They have crappy ones in original parts. They have not recalled though.
