If it shakes at a stop in or out of gear, you need to check your motor mounts. look at your oil pan and see if its been hiting the Kmember, crushing the lines on it. Also you can have a friend look at the motor with the hood up while you go from drive to reverse. Mounts bad enough to shake your car will be obvious.
Then again, if its more a vibration than a shake, you should take a good hard look at your harmonic balancer. If the center bolt is gone, park it before its too late! Then get a new one with bolt. good luck.
