My Cars Shaking! HELP

This morning I started my car (1993 300SE) and it was shaking pretty good. There was also a scretching noise coming from the engine compartment and when I opened the hood it seemed like the noise was coming from the drive belt and near the power steering pump. So I decided to drive it and i noticed that the shaking stopped when the engine reached over 1000 RPM and I had power steering for the first time in years! But the car still shakes when im at a light or stopped. This weekend I worked on the water valve and blower motor and im wondering if that has something to do with it, even though those two things are far from the area where the noise was coming from. HELP PLEASE!

Sounds like the power steering pump may be seizing up putting drag on the belt.
I could be wrong- but that is my first guess.

Good luck with it!
