Tune-Ups to Help Your Smart Fortwo Run Better

Is it time for an engine tune-up?

Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your Fortwo’s power on the road. Tune-ups help your engine start smoothly and run efficiently, so you can enjoy improved fuel economy and lower emissions. When you follow the guidelines specified by Smart for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you’re taking vital steps toward keeping your Fortwo’s engine running smoother, longer.

Routine Engine Tune-Up Service for Your Smart Fortwo

The Firestone Complete Auto Care location in your community offers several Smart Fortwo engine tune-up services. The standard Firestone Tune-Up is one service option. 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. This can improve your fuel system’s performance (and therefore, your engine’s performance). Here’s something to remember when choosing services: the mileage and service history of your Fortwo can determine what kind of service it 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 2012 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. Spark plugs are small but mighty. The spark of electricity that the plug emits across a small gap creates the ignition for the combustion needed to start your car. Without that spark, your car won't start.
  • What do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my Smart Fortwo? 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? You can make your driving habits more engine-friendly. Hard starts and stops can increase the stress on engine parts, especially over many years. Boost your fuel economy and care for your engine by using gradual, smooth starts and stops instead.
