A likely problem is that your tires are unbalanced. Do you notice some vibration at lower speeds? Does your your steering wheel seem to shake a bit when driving at lower speeds? Can you see your steering wheel shaking back and forth when you let it go while driving?
If so, you should take your car in to a tire shop and have them check the balance of your tires.
First I would have the tires balanced and checked for uneven wear and damage.
Then I would have an alignment done.
Bad sway bar bushings will cause a rattle in cornering and extra body roll.
Transmission fluid should be changed every 30K miles or less. Also bad fluid won't make your engine overheat. How hot is it getting and when does it heat up?

Ok I will get my tires balance...
Sometimes car use to overheat when temp. was hot outside and usually happens during street road driving Not during Highways.. As soon as car moves temp. comes back down..
My 4th gen would do the same thing. Like the others said, check for uneven tire wear and get them balanced. It also could be a warped brake rotor or a frozen brake caliper... does the car still shake while braking or pull hard to one side? Mine did and it turned out the passenger side front brake caliper had frozen on the rotor. Anyway, hope that helps a little... good luck!

Re: Car shakes at speed over 60 mph.. (Xx91AccordxX)
All answers up above are right.
MooGoCow3 good shot with a 30k trans flush service, 99% of the people dont even know there is a fluid in there, lol.
I worked on bunch of 90-93 Accords and usually, the upper ball joint goes bad on them.
Tie rods? Havent seen one yet (those fkrs are boolet proof).
You said that pass. seat is shaking. Check your axle.
Warped rotor wont cause vibration at high speed, unless you pressing the brake. Then your whole car will shake, like crazy.
Check tires balance first though. Check if tires are cupped (that'll do the shake), thats your struts doing the damage.
Let me know
-Driving an automatic car its like having a boring best friend
-Sleeper doesnt mean that you fall asleep in your car before hitting highway speeds.
Thank a lot guys...
My rear driver tire was stripped from inside...That was causing all the vibrations.. I changed it ..Now car runs fine... Although I do have cupped(inside and outside waer on tire) front tires..Later fellas.. thank again
