How bad is the vibrating? If you simply feel the vibrations when handling the knob but it doesn;t shake other times, it's just the machinery inside the transmission resonating throughout the shift linkage. If the knob simply moves without you feeling it, then you could have suspension problems in which vibrations are resonating up to the shift knob. Also, your shift linkage may be slightly loose.

1994 Nissan sentra i am having problems when shifting from reverse the other 1-5 gears work great but when you go into reverse you have to literally hit the stick shift and the clutch is depressed?

Sounds like a problem with the idler gear in between the reverse gear and the layshaft.

If your 1990 Nissan Sentra will not shift any higher than 1st gear and reverse is fine is it a problem with the modulator?

It is probably the governor gear. It is accessible from outside the trans. Put a new one in, drop the trans pan, drain all fluid and clean out the filter and refill.
