I'll use either one, some have consistant usage though.
Motorway ( Brit Highway )
Motoring ( Brit, ride in the country )
Motorhead ( car person or rock band)
Motor Mount ( rubber blocks that hold the engine/ motor )
Engine lift ( portable crane )
Check Engine Light ( US dash warning for a car engine/motor computer fault)
Small engine ( on a lawnmower )
Check the engine oil ( instruction in the owners manual)
That should get things started ;+)
