Oil Change Q&A for Your 2011 Smart Fortwo

  • Why check the motor oil level in my Smart Fortwo? Engine oil is a lubricant for the moving parts in your engine. If you're low or out of oil, engine parts can grind together, overheat, and cause your Fortwo’s engine to fail. That’s why you should check your oil and get it changed regularly.
  • Can I change my Smart Fortwo oil at home? Changing your own oil isn't as convenient as you might think. You’ll have to figure out how to properly dispose of the oil and buy special tools. 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 Fortwo exhaust smoke grayish or blue? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. It may be time for a pro to take a look. A leak can be caused by a variety of issues including faulty valve seals, blown piston rings, or old cylinder walls.
