Well their is a couple of different things it could be. First, if the is any MIL lights on ( check engine, service engine soon) then have it scanned and see what the code(s) are. One problem could be a sensor going bad such a and mass airflow sensor, MAP sensor, ect. This malfunction would send the wrong amount of fuel to the motor which can cause a misfire. A misfire would make the van shake. Second, it could be the trasnmission. My van started shaking when i would take off after it was running temperature, it eventually got so bad that it wouldn't shift out of second gear. therefore i had to replace the transmission because the shaking was coming from the spider gears which were worn down and actually skipping teeth. so start with the cheaper first which would be sensors.
