Easiest way follw the top radiator hose or it may be the bottom dependeing on your engine but follow it to the thermostat housing there should be only 2 bolts in the housing remove the bolts take out the tstat clean any old gasket from around the area replace with new tstat and gasket but before you do all that let the car cool down and if yout tstat is at the top it should be okay to do it without draining the system you'll lose a little coolant but if its at the bottom drain the system. Good luck

I changed the thermostats on my 1999 nissan maxima and still I'm getting cold air what is wrong with my car

Check pipes to the heater core to see if both are getting hot. If so, flapper doors which direct air through the heater core are not working, either due to vacuum leaks or bad actuators.

My 1999 nissan maxima 5 speed won't shift from 1st to second gear.

If it goes into other gears correctly, then the issue is likely a synchromesh problem with that particular gear, and the gearbox may have to be stripped.
You may try changing the gear oil first though, as this can often fix the issue without having to spend too much money on unnecessary repairs.

Nissan 1999 Maxima is over heating

Most likely not. Pulling the thermostat will get you home, but not a great fix. Is it overheating driving down the road or sitting still? If it is overheating driving down the road, look for a clogged radiator or stuck thermostat. If it overheats sitting still, look for your cooling fans not coming on.
