    Thanks for the clarification. I do suspect that theres a loose nut with washer somewhere underneath the passenger side thats why it vibrates.

    I strongly suggest that you jack up the car and remove the front passenger side tires. There surely is a loose nut somewhere on the suspension that needs to be secured.

    Please do write back on the progress. Hope this helps and thank you for using FIxYa!

Air works fine, no heat

First check your coolant level. If that is good then it could either be a clogged heater core, or there is a little servo motor under the passenger side dash board that controls the blend air door and the hot coolant flow into the heater core. One way to check it and it requires some bending and twisting. With the vehicle running look up under the passenger side dashborad and there will be a little servo with an arm attached to it. Next turn on the system on with the auto switch and push the button for cool then push the button for hot until it is maxed out to 90 degrees. Then observe if the servo lever moves, if not then more than likely its that servo. Sometimes it will make a banging noise or it could just be burnt out.

I have no heat in the winter and it sounds like i got water in my dashboard.

Most likely a bad heater core. It's behind/under the dash. There should be two hoses that go into the firewall under the hood. These carry and return warm coolant to the heater core. The blower motor blows across the heater core and pushes the warm air into your car. Try feeling the carpet under the dash on the passenger side. See if it's damp. Many times if the core starts leaking, your carpet will be damp over there. I've also seen them completely plugged up with dust/dirt/debris/insects, so the air wouldn't flow through it from the fan.
