From what you've said I am inclined to think you might have trash in the fuel tank and the new pump filter is getting clogged.

I could only guess,without the vehicle and some testing,but the shaking, if only at an idle,could be several different issues,from the idle control solenoid to ignition issues.
What comes to mind,that I would check,seeing as how it is 18 years old,would be a worn timing chain.
It could mimic ignition problems and mechanical timing does effect the ignition,thus the shaking at very low rpm,as you shut it off. Again only a guess.
You need to know the condition of the spark plugs,rotor and dist cap and igniton timing
The fuel filter,somehow seems to have a lot of people confused. It filters fuel,simply leave it at that,unless totally clogged,then fuel pressure comes into play.
A total loss of power from start to 50 mph,you look at the fuel filter and bocked exhaust, mainly the converter,otherwise forget the filter.

GO TO AUTO PARTS STORE BUY A FUEL PRESSURE GAUGE THAT CAN CHECK FUEL PRESSURE UP TO 100 PSI. LOCATE YOUR FUEL PRESSURE TEST PORT.LOOK FOR SCHRADER VALVE ON FUEL LINE NEXT TO EGR VALVE.PLACE A RAG NEAR THE SCHRADER VALVE AS YOU INSTALL FUEL PRESSURE GAUGE TO CATCH GAS SPILL AS YOU SCREW IN FUEL PRESSURE GAUGE HOSE FUEL PRESSURE 30 - 45 PSI WITH ENGINE RUNNING. THE ENGINE MUST BE OFF HOOK UP THE FUEL PRESSURE GAUGE.IF YOU HAVE TROUBLE THE FUEL PRESSURE GAUGE WILL HAVE INSTRUCTION HOW TO HOOK UP FUEL PRESURE GAUGE.BE CAREFUL CHECKING FUEL PRESSURE IS DANGEROUS JOB.DONT ALLOW NO MASSIVE FUEL SPRAYING WHEN HOOKING UP FUEL PRESSURE GAUGE YOU WILL GET CAR FIRE.
