When to Change 2009 Smart Fortwo Engine Oil

Looking for oil change recommendations for your 2009 Smart Fortwo? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. We know the ins and outs of motor oil, too. After all, like our maintenance technician Brianna says, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Smart recommends changing your 2009 Fortwo’s oil at regular intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. No matter the mileage, your Fortwo may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear knocking sounds coming from the engine, sense an oil smell in the cabin, or notice excess vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Smart if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, enjoy off-roading, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Smart Fortwo. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2009 Smart Fortwo motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Smart has specifically identified either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 2009 Fortwo.

Oil Change Q&A for Your 2009 Smart Fortwo

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Smart Fortwo? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and eventually lead to Smart Fortwo engine failure. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Smart Fortwo oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. Having your oil professionally changed reduces the chances of something going wrong with the oil change, but also help your car perform down the road.
  • Why is my Smart exhaust smoke gray or blue? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, blown piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
