comment Is engine braking harmful?
Guys, I greatly appreciate your discussion, and it is very informative and helpful. I do want to point out that I had in mind the assumption that while the tach is reading much higher that "normal driving", we're far quite from the red line. Say, red is around 6500, and we were at about 5000, the whole "ordeal" lasting around 30 seconds.

I should say, I'm asking this from a maintenance perspective; e.g., what effect would it have on the engine, transmission, etc

comment Does the tachometer provide any indication of fuel usage?
Great in-depth answer. "In the same gear and at the same speed your tachometer will always be at the same RPMs" sums up my error in understanding.
