Why does the steering wheel shake violently when in reverse or drive when the air is on?

Sounds like the idle is set too low. That steering wheel shake is probably from the engine on the verge of quitting because it's idling too slowly with the air on and the car in gear. There might also be a 'fast idle' solenoid associated with air con that is not being activated when the air con is turned on. Turning the air off and trying both drive and reverse will confirm, at least to some extent, that the idle is only too slow when the aircon is on, that is if the jerking steering wheel behavior doesn't occur. Then it's down to a simple idle adjustment, or at worst a look at a fast idle solenoid that may need replacing. With or without the solenoid, adjusting the idle a little faster should make this go away.

Is it safe to drive a car with a shaky steering wheel?

My steering wheel was shakey and worse when I hit my brakes. If this is your situation, it's alright to drive, but you need to have your rotors turned. They tend to warp when they're hot and the water from the rain hits them over a period of time.

Why does a 95 Lincoln mark viii go into reverse but not drive gears?

I was hoping someone would ask me that. I have a 96 mark viii - i bought it for $1500 (Awesome condition everything worked perfect.) After about 8 months of racing random cars everyday, the car would shake violently in and out of gears - and eventually drive turned into neutral. You MAY have a linkage problem, but not likely with a mark viii as it is not a common problem. If your car goes into reverse and moves but does not in drive - then your transmission is no good. I did this with mine (found out later that the one i had was not original). Check out question "How to change transmission in mark 8" describes how it is done exactly.

With your foot on the brake, put the transmission in drive, then reverse, drive, then reverse. If you hear a clunking noise, think about replacing the U-joint in the drive shaft with a heavy duty unit from NAPA auto parts. Get one that has a grease fitting so you can service it.
