I think what you might have is called dieseling on shut off. Newer engines run much hotter than older vehicles and require a fuel shut off solenoid close to the engine. If this solenoid goes bad, on vehicle shut off, excess fuel is still being fed to the engine. Even though there is no spark because the key is off, the engine is hot enough to ignite the fuel causing the shake and shudder. I'm not 100% sure of this but thats what it sounds like. If the solenoid is working properly and shuts off the fuel line like it should there is no excessive fuel to ignite. Thus no shake or shudder.
