2009 Smart Fortwo Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Tune Into Your Smart Fortwo

Is it tune-up time? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, now is the time to work on that habit, especially if you want your 2009 Smart Fortwo’s engine to last for a long time. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your Fortwo. Tune-ups help your engine start smoothly and run efficiently, 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 invest in your Fortwo's long-term health and engine performance.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Smart Fortwo

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Smart Fortwo engine tune-up services. The standard Firestone Tune-Up is one service option. It includes a complete visual inspection of engine components, installation of new spark plugs, and a lifetime warranty on parts*. A second service option replaces the air and fuel filter in your Fortwo. The third tune-up option is a fuel system cleaning service, which is a three-step process that removes varnish, dirt, and carbon deposits on your Fortwo's fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Keep in mind that your Fortwo's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs. If you’re not sure what services are the best fit for your car, let us help! Ask one of our technicians what your vehicle needs, based on your driving habits and your car’s current condition.

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 2009 Smart Fortwos

  • Will it hurt my Smart Fortwo to drive with old spark plugs? Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so. Spark plugs are small but mighty. The spark of electricity that the plug emits across a small gap creates the ignition for the combustion needed to start your car. Without that spark, your car won't start.
  • What does a puddle underneath my Smart Fortwo mean? Don't ignore puddles of fluid under your Smart Fortwo. It could signal a coolant leak, brake fluid leak, or an oil leak. Let any one of these leaks linger and it could cause engine damage.
  • What do hard starts and stops do to my Fortwo engine? Hard starts and stops put extra wear and tear on engine components. Smooth, gradual starts and stops, on the other hand, are a great way to help your engine run better. They can also help maximize your fuel economy.
