    Sounds like two separate issues. The oil leak is something that should be addressed, but probably is not influencing the motor shaking.

    Have the ignition components - down to the spark plugs - inspected for a possible misfire. There can be other reasons the car will "jerk" such as transmission issues, but based off of your description, I would look at plugs, coils, etc.
