What are Smart's recommendations for 2013 Fortwo radiator service and repair?

When to Service Your 2013 Smart Fortwo Cooling System

Not sure what a radiator does? That makes it difficult to know when to have your Smart Fortwo radiator serviced, but it's still extremely important. Your radiator is part of the cooling system. It helps regulate engine temperature. When the radiator isn't working properly, your engine can overheat and potentially break down.

Staying on top of routine radiator maintenance for your 2013 Smart Fortwo is crucial to keep your engine in the best possible shape for years to come. In fact, Smart recommends replacing coolant/antifreeze at specific intervals, but you can also take note of any signs your radiator is going bad. 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.

This vital part keeps coolant moving through the engine, hoses, and radiator. If it’s not working well (or at all), your engine can easily overheat.

From the heater core to the radiator cap, your 2013 Smart Fortwo is in good hands at Firestone Complete Auto Care. After all, we know it’s not just a car. It’s your car.

Common Smart Fortwo Radiator Questions

Take care of your 2013 Smart Fortwo radiator and it will last. Check out our top questions and answers about Smart radiators below, and visit your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care at the first sign of an overheating engine.

  • What does the coolant light on my Smart dashboard mean? Pay attention to the temperature gauge and lights on your dashboard. If a low coolant warning light comes on or your dashboard temperature gauge keeps rising, it’s likely that your engine is about to overheat (and could leave you stranded on the road). Wait for the engine to cool down, then have your coolant system checked immediately at your nearest Firestone Complete Auto Care.
  • Can an antifreeze leak wait? Notice a leaking fluid that's green, bright orange, or pink and feels sticky? It might be antifreeze. Antifreeze is toxic but has a sweet smell and taste that's attractive to many cats and dogs. Do your pets a favor and have an antifreeze leak investigated ASAP. Then hose down the driveway or garage floor!
  • When should my Smart Fortwo radiator be cleaned? To keep your Smart Fortwo radiator running well, it’s wise to get it cleaned out a few times a year.
