2017 Smart Fortwo Engine Tune-Ups & Maintenance

Tune-Ups to Help Your Smart Fortwo Run Better

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.

Engine Tune-Up for 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. 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.

2017 Smart Fortwo Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • When should Smart Fortwo spark plugs be replaced? Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so. Without the spark of electricity created by spark plugs, your engine doesn’t have the combustion it needs to start — which could leave you stranded on the road. Always replace your spark plugs on time based on Smart’s recommendations.
  • 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? Hard starts and stops put extra wear and tear on engine components. Smooth, gradual starts and stops, on the other hand, are a great way to help your engine run better. They can also help maximize your fuel economy.
