From what you’ve described it could be the engine flywheel that’s fault. The flywheel you have is a two part flywheel that may have bad dampers. These dampers are used to get rid of vibration when normally operating but is now causing it. Have it inspected to see if it is worn out and needs replaced. I’d suggest you get the car looked at by a certified technician who can diagnose the shaking you’re experiencing and make the necessary repairs to get your car running smoothly again.
