Do you have a project using a Smart CDI Diesel engine? Please leave a note and check out the progress of the bike here: nofalloff.blogspot.com/. For those putting an aftermarket ECU that needs a cam position sensor email me and I can sell you a copy of my cam sensor pickup plate that replaces the Vacuum pump.
Smart Car Oil Change with Topside Oil Changer
View this BMP Repair Tech Tip - follow this link:
This demonstrates a preferred method to changing the oil in a Smart Car
Fortwo or Forfour. Using the Topside Oil Changer opposed to traditional
methods is recommended due to the factory oil drain plug being notorious
for cross-threading and stripping out. **Note: The Smart Car used in this
video is an earlier NON-US version that does not have an oil drain plug.
Smart CDI -29C cold start
8th December, 2009. Novosibirsk, Russia. Cranks pretty good, but baaaarely
starts... Smart fortwo says "leave me alone, dude". ABS and ESP freezed,
which is why there's a warning light on the dash. The steering is very hard
at the beginning due to freezed suspension. I used Liqui Moly diesel
antigel, whis is the best in my oppinion, although a bit pricey.
Smart CDI review
Rowan Horncastle from Motormorph.com and Greenbang.com takes the new Smart
ForTwo diesel out of the city for a review.
smart fortwo cdi -12C Startup (barely)
Having lots of trouble this winter with cold starts. -12 C wouldn't have
been a problem other years, but something's not right... Went to change the
glow plugs out but they're seized into the engine head. Battery seems OK.
Could be low compression, I guess? At just over 262 000 km (4 years), now.
