Check your spark plugs, and for vacuum leaks. Turning hard might be your power steering pump and might be associated with the shaking. CEL on?

No check engine light on. Maybe one is pending. Thank you I was thinking the spark plugs

And when my car is in park it tries to move forward I dont know about that.
