2008 Smart Fortwo Tune-Up & Engine Service

Tune Into Your Smart Fortwo

Is your engine overdue for a tune-up? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, it might be time to change your ways, particularly if you want to keep your 2008 Smart Fortwo in tip-top shape. Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your Fortwo’s engine. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, which can mean better fuel economy (a win for you) and lower emissions (a win for the environment). When you take your car for regular engine tune-ups as recommended by Smart, you’re taking vital steps toward keeping your Fortwo’s engine running smoother, longer.

Smart Fortwo Engine Tune-Up Services

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 2008 Smart Fortwo. One option is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. The standard Firestone Tune-Up includes new spark plugs (and installation!), a thorough inspection of engine components, and a lifetime parts warranty*. A second service option replaces the air and fuel filter in your Fortwo. Our third service is a thorough cleaning of the fuel system. During this type of tune-up, we use a three-step process to get rid of harmful varnish, dirt, and carbon deposit buildup in your Fortwo’s fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Here’s something to remember when choosing services: the mileage and service history of your Fortwo can determine what kind of service it needs. If you’re not sure what services are the best fit for your car, let us help! Chat with a Firestone technician before you jump into a specific service to ensure your engine tune-up money is well-spent.

Questions About 2008 Smart Fortwo Engine Tune-Ups

  • When should Smart Fortwo spark plugs be replaced? Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so. Without the spark of electricity created by spark plugs, your engine doesn’t have the combustion it needs to start — which could leave you stranded on the road. Always replace your spark plugs on time based on Smart’s recommendations.
  • What should I do if I see leaks under my Fortwo? Puddles could indicate that your vehicle is leaking coolant, oil, or brake fluid. Ignoring these leaks can lead to permanent engine damage, so address these symptoms ASAP with a tune-up service.
  • Are hard starts and stops bad for my Smart Fortwo engine? You can make your driving habits more engine-friendly. Hard starts and stops can increase the stress on engine parts, especially over many years. Boost your fuel economy and care for your engine by using gradual, smooth starts and stops instead.
