I don't know the answer... I don't know that I care... but is it possible that seeing the "Steam Engine" came first, we needed a new name for the internal combustion engine?

Also, we go "motoring" down the highway... Lock N Load may have a point, is "motor" more than the "engine" alone and refers to the entire mechanical unit?
