I ASK FOR THE ENGINE BECAUSE HOW STRONGER IT IS WITH THE ENGINE BRAKE
Expert:  Daniel Wilson replied 5 months ago.

Thanks for the update. With the engine brake on there is more tension or load on the driveline and components when going down a hill. Keep me posted.

Thanks for the update. Any play in the transmission or driveline can cause a vibration as well as an out of balance driveline.
