Engine or Motor?

I just came across a phrase "carga de motor". When I looked it up on Linguee, it was always translated as "Engine Load". However, I've already translated "Motor" as "Motor" a couple of times and it sounded fine. However, "motor load" doesn't sound that great.

I've been seeing "motor" everywhere I look for related terms.

Will go with "motor = motor".

Merriam-Webster--
Engine: a machine that changes energy (such as heat from burning fuel) into mechanical motion
Motor: a machine that produces motion or power for doing work

The terms are very similar, so either could apply.

Motor approved. Everyone please assure consistency.
