Default Re: Electric = Motor.........Gasoline = Engine

Map, Aleman, that up there reminds me of the day when, working as a uniformed guard in Cleveland Ohio, I had an employee re-enter the building and come up to me saying her car wouldn't start.
I asked a few questions as we went out: does it just click, or does it turn over without firing? What exactly is it not doing? She replied that the engine was "just not turning on".
Curious now, I asked her what kind of engine she had. She said "Gas, I think". I asked her if she thought the battery might be dead. She said no, she was pretty sure it just ran on gas.
*mentally smacked my forehead*
I then told her she may need to call a shop. (I was figuring there may be good reasons the car wasn't starting.)
