In modern usage
The word "engine" derives from Old French engin, from the Latin ingenium?the root of the word ingenious. Pre-industrial weapons of war, such as catapults, trebuchets and battering rams, were called "siege engines", and knowledge of how to construct them was often treated as a military secret. The word "gin", as in "cotton gin", is short for "engine". Most mechanical devices invented during the industrial revolution were described as engines?the steam engine being a notable example. However, the original steam engines, such as those by Thomas Savery, were not mechanical engines but pumps. In this manner, a fire engine in its original form was merely a water pump, with the engine being transported to the fire by horses.
In modern usage, the term engine typically describes devices, like steam engines and internal combustion engines, that burn or otherwise consume fuel to perform mechanical work by exerting a torque or linear force (usually in the form of thrust). Examples of engines which exert a torque include the familiar automobile gasoline and diesel engines, as well as turboshafts. Examples of engines which produce thrust include turbofans and rockets.
When the internal combustion engine was invented, the term "motor" was initially used to distinguish it from the steam engine?which was in wide use at the time, powering locomotives and other vehicles such as steam rollers. "Motor" and "engine" later came to be used interchangeably in casual discourse. However, technically, the two words have different meanings. An engine is a device that burns or otherwise consumes fuel, changing its chemical composition, whereas a motor is a device driven by electricity, air, or hydraulic pressure, which does not change the chemical composition of its energy source.3 However, rocketry uses the term rocket motor, even though they consume fuel.
A heat engine may also serve as a prime mover?a component that transforms the flow or changes in pressure of a fluid into mechanical energy.4 An automobile powered by an internal combustion engine may make use of various motors and pumps, but ultimately all such devices derive their power from the engine. Another way of looking at it is that a motor receives power from an external source, and then converts it into mechanical energy, while an engine creates power from pressure (derived directly from the explosive force of combustion or other chemical reaction, or secondarily from the action of some such force on other substances such as air, water, or steam).5
Devices converting heat energy into motion are commonly referred to simply as engines.6
Mandatory review of the condition of the vehicle bus
The main responsibility for the condition of the bus goes on tour borne by the driver. It should be thoroughly familiar with the technical condition of the vehicle, which is to go on tour and report any defects to the site, which noted in his bus. Besides, from time to time, carried out a mandatory review of the condition of the vehicle bus, which should refer to the manager responsible for the fleet under its supervision. The driver must take care of yourself while is that while driving do not run out of fuel in the bus, so it makes refueling before you leave and then maybe driving up to a gas station within the allowed driving breaks. Isolated also complements the engine oil level on the bus.
Sudden servicing cars
Very often it happens that entrepreneurs engaged in conducting business in servicing cars decide to start cooperation with the insurer. In this case, they can significantly increase the number of its customers, and the insurer benefits from this by finding the point, which may redirect injured drivers. You have to admit, however, that such work may require, however, significant effort on the part of mechanics and auto electricians, because often repair the car, which is subject to insurance is sudden. Polish roads are often extremely well to many accidents, and then repair the damaged car can be really difficult to carry out.
