"Engine" is normally translated into "mesin", although some dictionaries put the word "motor" to explain this word. You may choose one of these ("mesin" or "motor") whichever most suitable.

Engine can be translated into both "mesin" and "motor". In your case, by referring to the description of the engine, it is more suitable to use "mesin" rather than "motor".

engine - MESIN

engine translated into Indonesian it meant MESIN. Engines divided into two kind of motors. They are diesel motor (CIE-compression ignition engine) and otto motor (spark ignition engine). Engine (MESIN) is to generate power. In English you know word - machine. Engine and machine both of them translated into Indonesian in the same word - MESIN. But different meanings. Example of machines such as lathe machines, drilling machines etc (not to generate power).
