When to Service Your 2010 Smart Fortwo Cooling System

If you’re not sure what the purpose of a radiator is, it’s hard to tell when to have your Smart Fortwo radiator serviced. Nonetheless, it's still extremely important. The radiator is in the cooling system of your car, and it helps your engine temperature stay within a safe range. If your radiator isn’t functioning like it’s supposed to, the engine can overheat – or worse, break down.

Staying on top of routine radiator maintenance for your 2010 Smart Fortwo is essential for long-term engine health. In fact, Smart recommends replacing coolant/antifreeze at specific intervals, but it’s also wise to keep an eye out for signs of a failing radiator. You could be on the verge of a radiator-induced engine breakdown if you see coolant leaks under your car, high engine temperatures, or a dashboard light that indicates low coolant. As soon as you see one of these symptoms, come to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a Courtesy Check.

With regular maintenance and service as needed, you could extend the life of your 2010 Smart Fortwo radiator. Get answers to common radiator questions, and head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care as soon as you suspect a radiator issue.

  • What does an illuminated coolant temperature light mean for my Smart? If the coolant light illuminates on your dashboard, your engine could be overheating. Pull over to a safe area and wait for the engine to cool down. Then, head to your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care for a coolant system check.

Then hose down the driveway or garage floor!
  • Do Smart Fortwo radiators need to be cleaned? To keep your Smart Fortwo radiator running well, it’s wise to get it cleaned out a few times a year.
