2010 Smart Fortwo Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Tune-Ups to Help Your Smart Fortwo Run Better

Is it tune-up time? If you usually wait until your car has an issue to take it in for service, it might be time to change your ways, particularly if you want to keep your 2010 Smart Fortwo in tip-top shape. Routine engine tune-ups can bring power back to your Fortwo. They're designed to help your engine start easier and run more 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’re taking vital steps toward keeping your Fortwo’s engine running smoother, longer.

Engine Tune-Up for Smart Fortwo

Your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care location has several options to choose from when it comes to Smart Fortwo engine tune-up services. The first is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. The standard Firestone Tune-Up includes new spark plugs (and installation!), a thorough inspection of engine components, and a lifetime parts warranty*. Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your Fortwo. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air filter. 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. This goes a long way in boosting your fuel system’s overall 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! Talk to a technician about your driving style, mileage, and service history to learn more about your vehicle's specific needs.

Questions About 2010 Smart Fortwo Engine Tune-Ups

  • What happens if my Smart Fortwo spark plugs fail? Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so. Without the spark of electricity created by spark plugs, your engine doesn’t have the combustion it needs to start — which could leave you stranded on the road. Always replace your spark plugs on time based on Smart’s recommendations.
  • 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.
  • Are some driving habits better for my Smart Fortwo engine than others? Hard stops and starts can lead to premature wear on your engine’s components. Lighten up that lead foot and opt for steady, fluid starts and stops instead. Your engine (and your passengers!) will thank you.
