Is it time for an engine tune-up? If you tend to ignore your car until something goes wrong, it might be time to change your ways, especially if you want your 2017 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 help your engine start smoothly and run efficiently, which can mean better fuel economy (a win for you) and lower emissions (a win for the environment). When you take your car for regular engine tune-ups as recommended by Smart, you can rest assured you’re investing in your Fortwo’s long-term engine performance.
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. The standard Firestone Tune-Up includes new spark plugs (and installation!), a thorough inspection of engine components, and a lifetime parts warranty*. A second service option replaces the air and fuel filter in your Fortwo. The third tune-up option is a fuel system cleaning service, which is a three-step process that removes varnish, dirt, and carbon deposits on 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. A one-size-fits-all engine tune-up procedure doesn’t necessarily exist. Talk to a technician about your driving style, mileage, and service history to learn more about your vehicle's specific needs.
Come to Firestone Complete Auto Care for your next 2017 Fortwo engine tune-up. Not sure when you’re due for a tune-up? Use Smart’s recommended maintenance schedule as a reference point, or schedule an appointment ASAP if you notice any of these signs: decreased gas mileage, "rough" idling or stalling when stopped, an illuminated check engine light on your dashboard, or a knocking sound when the engine is running.
