I was trying to identify "exhaustgases" among that lot. I decided he is posting in that forum under multiple pseudonyms.

Agreed, some of the replies were humorous but someday it will work.

Hard to say when it becomes viable so until then they can joke.

My friend Kevin will no doubt call the electric motors, Engines.

Strangely, he thinks they are synonyms!!

No no no. Motors are not engines. Engines however - are motors.

An engine is a type of motor. This is just a fact.

A motor is a machine that converts other forms of energy into mechanical energy and so imparts motion. An engine is a motor that converts thermal energy to mechanical work.

Not all motors are engines, but EVERY engine is a motor.

It would somewhat depend on how many birds one has.

Presently we are mostly automobile enthusiasts on an automobile forum.

I think its safe to assume most of us own, repair, drive or race automobiles.

Without me even knowing your name or where you live I know something.

I know the automobile you own, or owned, or repair, or drive, or race....

I know most likely what ever the make or model, gasoline or brown...

Whether carbureted Turbocharged or with power steering or rear defog..

Front wheel drive, ex taxi, leather interior, pickup, or blue in color..

The one thing I know with remarkable accuracy is your automobile ...

No doubt, with a high degree of confidence, bordering on absolute certainty,

Your automobile, the very one I'm talking about now, right now that it has

Several motors, possibly a starter motor, heater motor, window or fan motor

But said automobile, flush with motors, most certainly has one Engine.

Considering what I know about your automobile, I still maintain...

There is no logical reason to call an Engine a motor.

Yes there is. An engine is a type of motor.

That is a fact that you can not dispute unless you do not use the common definition of those words. Why are you so stuck on this issue?

A modern car has many motors, one of them is an engine. Do you deny this fact?

The fact most cars have several motors and one Engine is precisely why:

There is no logical reason to call an Engine a motor.

This isn't something I made up merely something I logically observed.

I use my God given brain, small as it may be compared to the enlightened.

Others can justify their nonlogicalness if they choose, no problem with me.

Please take for example:

General Motors.

Chrysler Motors

Ford Motor Company

All refer to their Engines as Engines.

Strangely, none refer to their Engines as motors.

Are they not capable of thought in this regard or what?

Possibly they conclude motoring is travelling in a powered vehicle.

A horseless carriage some might say, electric, steam or internal combustion.

It's fair to say the electric horseless carriage is powered by a motor.

This is why there is no logical reason to call an Engine a motor.

Anyone is free to dispute this if they choose, but why is beyond me??

I don't need to rely on generic dictionary definitions to defend my position.

My position needs no justification unlike the highly educated folks require.

All it takes for me is a glance under the hood of virtually every motor car.

Obviously some wish to argue every detail so enjoy your illogical position.

Please don't read my lips but perhaps read whats after Ford Motor Company

Thanks
Randy

Not a single instance you have quoted is proof that engines are not members of the "motor" family.

I could use the same reasoning to deny that chickens are birds.

I go to the supermarket to shop for one of the hundreds of chicken products on sale - chickens, chicken breast, chicken thighs, chicken soup . . . . . Not one of them says "bird" anywhere on the packaging. Strangely none of the manufacturers refer to their products as "bird" either. No advertising for chicken products ever refers to the product as a "bird".

There is a reason for this. People want to know what kind of bird is in the packet - is it duck, goose, turkey, pheasant, quail, spatchcock, emu or chicken. It is NOT because chickens are not birds - I can assure you they are.

You are entitled to call engines "engines" and refuse to ever refer to them as motors. You are not entitled to correct others when they refer to them as motors, because they are indeed motors - the dictionary says so, and engineering terminology convention says so.

A lot of funny things have happened to the english language. An interesting one is the word "wreck". I believe in America, it is the most commonly used term for a motor vehicle collision. In Australia, the UK and traditionally in the english language a "wreck" is the damaged remains of a vessel or vehicle. We refer to a vehicle accident as a crash, a smash or an accident - never a "wreck". Nevertheless, you are entitled to continue to call motor vehicle accidents "wrecks" and I won't try to correct you. I call them something else because the people around here would be confused if I call then "wrecks".

Does this label convince you that "chicken" is not "poultry"? Please don't read my lips, just read what comes after "Valley Poultry".

I don't remember ever correcting you but you've been criticizing me.

I have been addressing some of your comments in a good natured way.

I'm amazed how educated folks continually use an incorrect term.

If there were a reason I could understand but there is none.

All I hear are excuses for calling Engines motors.

Arguments and justifications.

Never a logical reason.

The proof is everywhere every day of the year without fail.

The motor car companies never call Engines motors.

Why would I unless I was looking to argue for dumbness.

Why would I dispute the terminology that Ford uses?

What would I be trying to prove?

That I'm dumber??

Smarter??

Thanks !!
