The problem would most likely be that some oil got onto some of the engine. I believe there is a special cleaner for that. I have an understanding, that oil on the engine can cause some damage. ??? Oil on the engine will burn and smell/smoke...but won't cause shaking. Driving without the oil cap can lead to all sorts of junk getting into the valvetrain. If enough debris gets in can score/scratch cam lobes, interfere with rocker arms, valves, etc. Excess moisture can lead to water mixing with oil which is never good. Change your oil and inspect the condition of the used oil. Look for water or excess contaminants. Also, open your radiator cap and check your coolant. If it looks milky brown (oil in the coolant looks like coffee) then you have a blown head gasket...definitely worth the time to check.
