Using known results on 4-Engel groups one can see that a 4-Engel group is locally nilpotent if and only if all its 3-generator subgroups are nilpotent. As a step towards settling the question whether all 4-Engel groups are locally nilpotent we show that all 2-generator 4-Engel groups are nilpotent.
