Check fluid level and the mounting bracket at the end of the transmission, it could be loose or broken. also, a u-joint will ,make your car vibrate when your driving. if its that, take care of it asap or you will be looking at some expensive repairs...

Plus I noticed that the exhaust brake is on 100% of the time. Under the dash I found a wire with a push on connector that is labeled exhaust brake but not hooked up, is that ok ?

jake brakes have a separate isolation switch , that the operator can used to turn of the jake brake when that operation is not required
many vehicles have the jake brake connected to a switch/ sensor on the accelerator pedal or linkage to operate as you describe and the power for that switch/ sensor comes from the switch that I mentioned ,in the dash or steering wheel controls
A make and model of engine , vehicle would be a help but what I mentioned is basic to all models of operations

Why it sounds like it's jake braking when I lay off the throttle? The jake brake is not even switched on either?

Jake brakes are controlled by electro-mechanical solenoids that are screwed in the Jake housings on top of the camshafts and rocker arms. Oil passes through these solenoids when they are switched on, and oil pressure is what opens your exhaust valves up to use the engine as a brake. Sounds like you have one or more of these solenoids that are stuck on, letting oil by all the time. Another thing could be a bad Jake Brake On/Off switch, letting power by even if it's off... (doubt that would be it though, but it could be)

Need removal instuctions for a jake brake

The jake brake is actually built right onto the heads they block your exhaust to slow down compression. Its actually called an engine brake. But if you wantvto remove them you will have to order new heads but why not just turn the switch off for the jake brake or maybe replace it

I have an 2003 chevrolet cavalier, its automatic I was just wondering how do I know when I need another transmission to put in it. When I mash the excelartor it some times gives a hard jake to it.

Not certain I understand your question, but I'll volunteer this-if you step on the gas, especially when the car is cold, and the engine rpms go up with little acceleration, your trans is slipping and is on it's way out. A hard 'jake' as you refer to it, sounds like you may have a broken accumulator spring which can usually be repaired with the trans in the vehicle. No matter what, it is a good idea to have a trans service done every 30-50,000 miles, where the trans fluid is drained (as much as possible, in most cases the torque converter fluid cannot be drained without disassembly) and the filter replaced. To help with longer life, a transmission cooler is a great addition since a cooler running trans will last significantly longer.
