Is it bad for your car to engine brake? Engine braking is when you use the engine to slow your car down, rather than the mechanical brakes. This utilizes the engine's cooling system to displace the heat that results from slowing the vehicle down. There are benefits to engine braking, such as better fuel economy, and saving the life of your brake pads.
