Engines produce torque, and over a specific amount of time, that torque translates into horsepower. If the load is too great, the engine rpm will drop and less torque and horsepower are produced. If the load stops, so does the engine, unless there is slippage somewhere in the drive train.

I have yet to see an internal combustion engine that slips under load. A reduction in engine rpm due to poor ignition, carburation, or timing is not the same as slippage.
