compression brake; retarder by combustion engine; engine brake


Explanation:
I get 122 hits on Google for *compression brake*; 2,830 hits for *engine brake*; and 43 for *retarder by combustion engine*. I also get 35 hits for *retarder system*. I'd go with the term proposed in the first two responses: engine brake!

From Termium:

(1) English:Trucking (Road Transport)
compression brake s
1981-11-09

(2) English:Trucking (Road Transport)
Braking Systems (Automotive)
retarder by combustion engine s CORRECT
engine brake s CORRECT
DEF - Supplemental brake located away from the wheels and which can be mechanically disengaged by the clutch and transmission, thereby slowing down the moving vehicle. s
1996-07-25

(3) Note: an exhaust brake works on a different principal:

English:Trucking (Road Transport)
Braking Systems (Automotive)

exhaust-brake retarder s CORRECT
exhaust brake s CORRECT
DEF - Supplemental brake with a butterfly valve or sliding gate in the exhaust system which restricts exhaust gas flow to decrease piston speed, thus using the engine as a braking device. s
OBS - When exhaust flow is restricted, the engine acts as a compressor. As back pressure increases, RPM decreases; vehicle speed also decreases because the engine is coupled to the drive wheels through the transmission. s

Here is an example contrasting *freno de motor* and *freno de escape*:

... la velocidad ajustada con la ayuda del ralentizador, freno motor y freno de escape,
equilibrando la potencia del ralentizador contra la temperatura del ...

(4) Note: (From Termium) English:Braking Systems (Automotive)
Braking Devices (Machinery)
exhaust brake s
OBS - --can be used on petrol engines if a valve isolates the carburetter and simultaneously allows free induction of air from atmosphere s
