Had changed the oil and fluids in a 96 thunderbird & shortly after that it would run hot!!While stopped, parked, or in drive the car would shake and then the engine started smoking and now the exhaust pipe is as well. Thought it was the water pump and thermostat, but not to sure now.

Could be plug fouling out from leaky fuel injector flooding engine when you shut it down, then clears after running some, however, running hot is not a good sign and could point to head gasket leak. Many other possibilities too, but I would start with examination of spark plugs.
look around near the firewall for another 'dip-stick', similar to your oil dip-stick, you check and add fluid into the same place. and you will want to check the fluid level when the engine is warmed up, and running. (unlike checking the oil) also, a funnel is recommended (dont want to spill fluid around) if you see the need to add fluid
Something is wrong here ?????????????????????????????????????
If you changed the oil Why did the shacking stop Oil has nothing to do with shaking But a missing plug or spark or lead would cause it but the oil must have been on the inside of plug ????????? But OK Take off each plug lead off the spark plug 1 at a time for 2 seconds and then refitit and let me no if 1 of them dosent make any differance to the engine shaking,AND also how hot dose the engine get when running if very hot,, Then i want you to check the radiator and coolant Radiator hot top and bottom ??if only bottom then your thermostat is no good If ok then is coolant or oil going down fast,if yes then you can have a head gasket problem causing both problems, Let me know
how things go. are you on SKYPE Ron
