2016 Smart Fortwo Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Tune Into Your Smart Fortwo

Is it time for an engine tune-up? If you're the type of driver who waits for something to go wrong with your vehicle, it could be time for a new way of doing things, especially if you want your 2016 Smart Fortwo’s engine to last for a long time. Regular engine tune-ups can optimize your Fortwo’s power on the road. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, which can lead to lower emission levels and better fuel economy. When you get routine engine tune-ups based on Smart's recommendations, you invest in your Fortwo's long-term health and engine performance.

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. One option is the standard Firestone Tune-Up. The standard Firestone Tune-Up includes new spark plugs (and installation!), a thorough inspection of engine components, and a lifetime parts warranty*. The second service focuses on your Fortwo's filters, specifically replacing the air filter and fuel filter. Yet another service is a fuel system cleaning process, which involves removing varnish, dirt, and carbon deposits that have built up inside the fuel injectors, throttle body, and throttle plate in your Fortwo. This goes a long way in boosting your fuel system’s overall 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. Chat with a Firestone technician before you jump into a specific service to ensure your engine tune-up money is well-spent.

Questions About 2016 Smart Fortwo Engine Tune-Ups

  • 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 do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my Smart 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.
  • Are hard starts and stops bad for my Smart Fortwo engine? 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.
