And I have to refill the coolant quite alot. I have had to refil the coolant 4 times in the past week. I cant find a leak so I dont know where it is going. Also I have some excess smoke and water comming out. Coolant for the radiator runs out after a couple of days. Heaters stop workiing when run dry. Smoke and water is comming out the exuast. Sometimes the car is quite shakey when first started. Temperature quage goes to red when water is all gone and can go all over the place somtimes. And when driving along with my foot gently on the accellerator it jerks a little bit.

You have done internal damage from constant overheating. The head gasket is bad and possibly the head may be cracked. I would not drive it till you get it looked at and fixed.
