Smart recommends having your 2010 Smart Fortwo’s motor oil changed at regular intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. No matter the mileage, your Fortwo may need its oil changed ASAP if your check engine light is on, you hear engine knocking, smell oil inside the car, or notice excess vehicle exhaust.

In general, being extra-diligent about oil changes won’t damage your Smart Fortwo. In fact, more frequent oil changes give our technicians more opportunities to catch and alert you to any issues, like worn brake pads or a weak battery.

2010 Smart Fortwo Oil Change Questions

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Smart Fortwo? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, these parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Fortwo’s engine to fail. That’s why it’s best to check your oil levels and get your oil changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Smart oil on my own? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. 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? There could be an oil leak and your engine is burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, damaged piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
