    Do you have a Check Engine Light ever coming on? Is the shaking from the steering wheel only. Is the sound maybe coming from the exhaust?

    My car did something similar after it backfired one time while trying to start it. Turned out to be a vacuum line on the passenger side in the back of the engine that had come off. It was easy enough to slip back on once I found it. Do not attempt to do this while it's running.

    i had the same problem, and the answer was to reconnect the vacuum hose like mr clean said.
