How Often to Get 2014 Smart Fortwo Oil Changes

Not sure how or where to get your Smart Fortwo’s oil changed? Look no further than Firestone Complete Auto Care! We are experts in car care — not just tires. We know all about motor oil, too. After all, "Oil is the blood of the engine. It's the #1 thing you can do for your car," says our maintenance technician, Brianna.

Your 2014 Fortwo’s oil should be changed according to Smart’s recommended oil change intervals. Check the interval for your vehicle mileage in the table above. Outside of Smart-recommended oil change intervals, your Fortwo may need an oil change if your check engine light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the car, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You may also need an oil change more frequently than Smart recommends if you haul heavy loads, frequent dusty roads, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. More frequent oil changes generally won't harm your Smart Fortwo. Each oil change is actually another chance to check and resolve other car issues, such as worn brake pads or tire treads.

What Type of Oil Does My Smart Fortwo Need?

Your local Firestone Complete Auto Care has the right 2014 Smart Fortwo motor oil: either synthetic or conventional. Smart has most likely outlined either synthetic or conventional as the best motor oil for your 2014 Fortwo. This oil helps lubricate engine parts, maintain proper engine temperature, and keep harmful substances from building up inside the engine. In an oil change service, a technician will change your Fortwo's oil, replace and recycle the old oil and filter, inspect all of your other filters, top-off essential fluids, and visually inspect the rest of the vehicle. You can rest assured knowing that we seek to do what’s best for your Fortwo by considering your driving style, and mileage.

2014 Smart Fortwo Oil Change Questions

  • What can low oil do to my Smart Fortwo engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If your oil reservoir is low or empty, engine parts can grind together, generate too much heat, and cause your Smart Fortwo engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Smart oil on my own? 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 changed professionally can not only reduce the risk of something going wrong during the service, but also with your vehicle down the road.
  • Why is my Smart Fortwo spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? Your engine could be burning oil due to a leak. Time to have a qualified technician check things out. The leak could be the result of worn valve seals, fried piston rings, or damaged cylinder walls.
