A dream of contrary; the meaning is the opposite of what you might think. The harder or faster the machinery in your dream was working, the more the setbacks you must expect along your chosen path; however, if the engine was stopped, it forecasts certain success in your endeavors, although you may have a few obstacles along the way. An engine that is broken or damaged means treacherous associates may delay you in reaching your objective, but their efforts will be ineffective; you'll get there in the end.
