It started when I was driving today. After shutting the car off and then starting it again the vibration was gone, but returned in less than 5 minutes.

Does it vibrate at certain speed?

Does the shaking start after hitting a bump?

Nope. I ran the car again last night just sitting in my driveway and there wasn't any shaking but when I got home yesterday it was sitting in idle and was shaking pretty bad.

I thought the shaking was while driving down the road because you mentioned your steer wheel was shaking. So is the engine running rough?Or do you just have a vibration?

No the engine is running fine and it doesn't shake noticeably even when the steering wheel does.

So just the steering wheel vibrates while sitting still at idle?

Right. But I've started it two times since and there hasn't been anything.

If the steering while vibrates at idle while not moving and the engine is running smooth.I would be looking at the engine and transmission mounts.
