2011 Smart Fortwo Tune-Up & Engine Service

Tune-Ups to Help Your Smart Fortwo Run Better

Is it time for an engine tune-up? If you usually wait until your car has an issue to take it in for service, it could be time for a new way of doing things, particularly if you want to keep your 2011 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, so you can enjoy improved fuel economy and lower emissions. When you take your car for regular engine tune-ups as recommended by Smart, you invest in your Fortwo's long-term health and engine performance.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Smart Fortwo

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care offers a range of engine tune-up services for your 2011 Smart Fortwo. The first is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. This includes the installation of new spark plugs and a visual inspection of your engine’s components, plus a lifetime warranty on parts*. Another service option pays special attention to the filters in your Fortwo. Specifically, we replace the fuel filter and air filter. Our third service is a thorough cleaning of the fuel system. During this type of tune-up, we use a three-step process to get rid of harmful varnish, dirt, and carbon deposit buildup in your Fortwo’s fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate. The result? Restored fuel system performance. Keep in mind that your Fortwo's mileage and maintenance history can uniquely impact its tune-up needs. This means that a tune-up service that’s a great fit for another car may not be optimal for yours. Talk to a technician about your driving style, mileage, and service history to learn more about your vehicle's specific needs.

Where to Get a Tune-Up for Your Smart Fortwo

Common Engine Tune-Up Q&A For 2011 Smart Fortwos

  • What happens if my Smart Fortwo spark plugs fail? When it’s time to replace the spark plugs, don’t delay. These small (but vital!) parts provide the electric spark that your car needs in order to start, and old spark plugs can prevent your car from starting at all. Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so.
  • What should I do if I see leaks under my Fortwo? Puddles could indicate that your vehicle is leaking coolant, oil, or brake fluid. Ignoring these leaks can lead to permanent engine damage, so address these symptoms ASAP with a tune-up service.
  • What do hard starts and stops do to my Fortwo engine? Hard starts and stops put extra wear and tear on engine components. Smooth, gradual starts and stops, on the other hand, are a great way to help your engine run better. They can also help maximize your fuel economy.
