There is no such thing as an electric engine. They are called motors. /pedantic
I am derailing this thread, but whatever:engine
noun en?gine \?en-j?n\
: a machine that changes energy (such as heat from burning fuel) into mechanical motion
Weird, normally when English has two words for something it's because of the mixed Latin/Germanic heritage of the language, but according to etymonline.com both have Latin roots.I am derailing this thread, but whatever:
In Portuguese, we call all those "motores", one word for either "engine" or "motor".
Why English has both? What would be the difference?
Seconded that. I had a chance to compare Hi-ace diesel with Frontera, and i must say, Yotta's N/A 2.5 tractor has more torque than GME 2.3 ecoboost sewing machine. And mind that it has mechanical pump too, it's a win-win in reliability for day to day car.Was just coming to post that. Specifically the 1UZ-FE. Special mention also goes to the 2JZ-GE and the 2L diesel.
?Motor? is rooted in the Classical Latin movere, ?to move.?Weird, normally when English has two words for something it's because of the mixed Latin/Germanic heritage of the language, but according to etymonline.com both have Latin roots.
Correction, doesn't need enough power to hurt itself. Same about 360cui, the thing brings 2 tonns of steel up to 60 in 6 seconds, revving lazy to 4500 tops. THAT's the power of torque.Also a vote for the Chrysler 318cid (5.2L) Magnum-era V8. Super low-stress, didn't make enough power to hurt itself.
Because when they invented the thing, it hadn't been powered by most brilliant tech in the world.So why isn't that thing called an enginecycle?

Here is the earliest reference in the OED.So why isn't that thing called an enginecycle?
1894 Atlanta Constitution 17 June 23 Some inventive genius with more activity in his brain than in his legs, has devised a cycle which appears to meet the utmost requirements of pure laziness. It is called the motor cycle and the propelling power is produced by coal oil.
and the PRV V6 is best used as boat anchors.Which one?
1. Volvo PRV is the V6
2. Volvo straight four is the redblock B21/B23.
