A motor has an outside power source, like elecric, air, hydraulic.
An engine has it's internal power source. Like internal combustion engines and jet engines.
But then we have rocket motors, steam engines with detached boilers, and engine lathes (lathes that do threading) And mathematical engines, like calculators. So rules are made to be broken?
That thingy under the hood? Either.
