Why do people rely so heavily on compression braking?

I realize that words are just words and anyone halfway savvy with the language can sway opinion,

therefore, I offer this as evidence...

As removed from my 1991 Ranger 3.0, 5speed.

198,000 miles on these components.

Installed May 2005, pulled secondary to engine swap

will be reinstalled and run for another 198,000+ miles. (actually figuring that this will be the last time I pull the engine for any reason.


This is from a daily driver, I was using this vehicle for insurance property inspections, close to 150 miles a day, stop and go, traffic, heat of the day, Didn't shut the truck off all day long, save for refueling maneuvers. (some of that "hard service" stuff you have read about in your owners manuals)

Pulling my boat,

pulling my travel trailer,

hauling assorted and various things.



I am not posting to rile anyone up, or to stir any pots.

I am just saying that engine braking is not detrimental PROVIDED you use some common sense about it.

(clutch wear my rump roast...Use quality stuff and run it the way the manufacturer, and the laws of physics say to)



Happy Motoring and consider the physical limitations of your equipment, if you have to trust your life to it...why go cheap?


Nothing further your Honor.


Be at peace with each other.





Edited for grammatical errors, some left in anyway.
