Would a blown brake line affect the start of a 1992 Mazda truck?

Brake lines are in no way connected to the engine. Brakes are a hydraulic system and is separate from the engine. "IF" you are talking about a vacuum line, you may have trouble starting or runnning the engine. There is a vacuum booster behind the brake master cylinder. The vacuum or suction from the engine pulls on a rubber diaphragm to assist with braking, If the line or hose is broken, you will have some trouble with the idle. It would normally increase in this situation as the engine is getting more air through the hose instead of through the air filter.

When going down a steep hill should you use the engine or brakes?

Nether what you should do is just take your foot off the gas and let it roll down the hill to its destination.My answer:When going downhill it may be necessary to slow down to maintain steering control. Using brakes only on a long steep decline can cause the brakes to heat up and fail. Any gasoline engine or a diesel engine equipped with a "Jake Brake" can provide additional braking without heating the brakes. With many automatic transmissions it is necessary to manually select a low gear. Manual transmission drivers will do this automatically. With 2WD vehicles there are additional considerations when using engine to brake in slick conditions:Regardless of front or rear drive, it is usually best to cease engine braking before entering a curve. The regular brake and especially ABS will distribute braking more equally and are less likely to cause understeer than FWD engine braking or oversteer compared to RWD engine braking.

Don't downshift at 30mph like an @sshole. Get down to 10mph before you get into 2nd, 5 before you get into 1st. I just hope you realize that's engine braking (not shoe/wheel braking), so you're just building up stress on your engine.
