Yes, I know. I constantly try to correct myself in the matter, but the fact that I've been calling motors "engines" for significantly more years than I've been an engineering major, who now knows better, makes it difficult to always be politically correct. Either way, I'm sure you understand what I'm saying. All engines are motors, but not all motors are engines.
