Petrol powered engines have a way of stopping itself to decelerate its production. Throttle valves are made to do that by limiting the air intake that leads to the combustion cylinders. Diesel engines don’t have throttle valves to stop the power provided in burning diesel fuel. Since the deceleration process is different, it relies on different diesel engine brakes.
There are two things that you might need and those are the engine retarders and the exhaust brakes. Both have the same function of reducing the power produced by the engine. The engine retarder works by releasing compressed air to the atmosphere instead of being directed to the cylinders. Exhaust brakes on the other hand work by restricting exhaust from re-entering the cylinders to add up to the combustion materials.
