It's possible you have a blown head gasket. In that case, the heater core which is above the engine fills with exhaust and stops working. To verify this condition, check exhaust for excessive white smoke. If leak is still small, it's possible you won't see much. In that case have a shop check the radiator for hydrocarbons (exhaust). If the test shows any in cooling system, you definitely have a head gasket problem.
I'd also check the thermostat. Sometimes it can give similar symptom but more often than not this will trace back to the hg.

SOURCE: 2001 Olds Silhouette: plenty
2000 Olds Silhouette: plenty of gas in the tank but the gage will read full, 3/4 full, 1/2 full, and everywhere in between. Van runs fine. No other issues except the gage goes crazy and can't depend on what it says. ...

It have to be the thermostat if the water is still in the tank and the hoses on the radiator have all the pressure the water is not going in, replace the thermostat and you will be fine now the thermostat is located under the intake black hose the goes to the air filter ,take that off that way u would have enough room to get to it take the 2 screws off and is out. I hope that help you .

Hi and welcome to FixYa!
The fan relays or fan motor itself can be faulty that's why it tends to overheat. You will need to have it replaced if that's the case.
The motor shakes so bad it's because that you have a faulty TPS (throttle position sensor). If the TPS is faulty you'll have erratic idle.
One more reason why the engine shakes when driving is because the transmission fluid is burnt. If the fluid is burnt it tends not to shift so I suggest that you have the fluid replaced.
Hope this information was helpful enough and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!
