T-350, what happened to engine braking?

So driving home today, was goofing off a bit, and left an intersection pretty hard, OK, real hard, shifted to second, and had a real weird smell, and a "ting" noise for just a second. Must a been real loud to year it over my exhaust, kept driving home, and all seemed fine, but I knew my trans was a bit low, had been for a week or so, get home, check it, its way low, which would explain the lazy 2-3 shift and slow reverse engagement, fill back up, it took 2 liters....oops. take my kid to his bball game, and it shifts beautifully, but realized I have no engine braking in second gear. Like any speed. Down shifting and lifting will let it settle down to idle speed, I get back in the gas and it flashes to where it should be and just keeps on issue, what the hell did I break? Just got home, made a few full tilt passes on my road (countryside road lol) and it works flawless, except for still no engine braking, fluid is clean, doesn't smell burnt,,,.....any ideas? Th350 behind a mildish small block....411 gears if it matters....any input would be appreciated....
