Engine Q&A 2009 Smart Fortwo

  • Why does my Fortwo’s check engine light come on when I start it? Generally, your check engine light turning on upon ignition is not a bad thing. It’s just your Fortwo firing up its circuits. The light should turn off in a bit, but come see us if it doesn't.
  • Why does my Smart engine sound different? Strange under-the-hood noises can point to problems within your Smart Fortwo engine. Tapping or knocking could mean you're low on oil. A high-pitched whistle could signal an intake leak or misaligned belt. Squealing can indicate a loose fan belt, and grinding might be coming from the brakes, not the engine.
  • What could damage a Smart engine? [ordered-list-1-item-3-1]Are you unknowingly damaging your Smart Fortwo engine? Some driving habits are not so great for your engine. These include driving on a near-empty gas tank, revving your engine while the vehicle is in Park, or accelerating too quickly, too soon.

  • Is it okay to put water in my Smart Fortwo radiator? Only in emergencies. A 50/50 mix of coolant and water (or a pre-mixed) coolant is recommended. However, if you must keep driving when you're out of coolant, it's better to drive with water in your coolant reservoir than nothing.
