  1. 2008 Smart Sitting For a While Won't Start

    smart General Discussion
    My boy Sancho started! Thank you everyone for the help.Wohoo! After seeing there no codes and the fuses were still intact I figured I should try the alternator rust fix I mentioned in the OP. It worked! At first I was skeptical because that was in reference to a cdi smart but it was simple...

    UPDATE: Problem fixed. See post number 9 below. :) Hi everyone, I've had my 2008 Sancho sitting on the drive way for almost a year. About a month ago I went to start it and sure enough it was completely dead. Upon trying to boost the battery everything would light up with the three bars on...
  5. Should I Change My Transmission Oil?

    smart Operation and Maintenance
    Hi Everyone, My '08 sancho is about to hit 65K and I'm on the fence. I've gone through the great thread by rfernatt (sorry if I misspelled it) on changing the oil but I've also read that if one waits too long for changing the transmission oil is better not to change it. is 65K too long? Thanks...

    smart General Discussion
    I guess, after I pass the link around to everyone I want to see the video, I'll make it public and take my chances then. In the video manager section I do have the warning from youtube but it says that if it were to be monetized the $$$ would go to the songs copyright holders. I think that's...

    smart General Discussion
    I'm afraid to. I uploaded the video to FB and they automatically took it down over the song. I was crossing my fingers YT wouldn't do the same. That's why I put the disclaimer on the description and added the credit at the end. When I have time I'll look for a song in the public domain, but as...

  9. 453 new Styling

    smart General Discussion
    On the 451 I like the way it looks from the side and no so much the front. On the new 453 I like how it looks from the front and no so much from the side. We can't have everything in life I guess :D

  13. Battery died this morning

    smart General Discussion
    How long has it been "laboring" to start the car for? Mine did it for almost a year until it needed a jump. I would suggest after about 7 or 8 months of that, order the NAPA battery and have it ready so you can save some $ unless you can wait to get it replaced if it does die.
  14. Battery died this morning

    smart General Discussion
    Mine didn't fully die last week but I had it replaced anyways. I could tell for a while on starting the engine that the battery was going, so when the car wouldn't start last week, wouldn't even make a sound upon turning the key, I knew it was the battery and needed a jump. After getting the...
  15. Anti-freeze flush and fill

    smart General Discussion
    I don't have my own driveway to work on my cars and based on what I've read in this forum over the years, I couldn't trust just any shop to do the coolant flush so I bit the bullet and went to the SC/MB dealership. They charged me $450 for the coolant and brake fluid replacements. It did sting...
  16. What did you do with your smart today?

    smart General Discussion
    I just had High Pitch Eric from the HS Show in my smarty and we drove around outside the city. If anyone EVER doubts if its roomy inside that's the ultimate proof that indeed, it is. :D
  17. I Don't Even Know What Title To Put On This Thread...

    smart General Discussion
    I do agree with your suggestions. Is almost as if the smart decided to teach me a lesson for trying to beat the system. The one thing I'm wondering is why after three or more weeks of a constant on CEL, it suddenly went off. My only guess is that we had heavy rain going on yesterday and some...

    smart General Discussion
    So Ive had the CEL go on and off on its own for a few months. It was throwing code P0497 which a simple search here will reveal is not that big of a deal. In any case the light has been steady on for about three weeks. Fast forward to last night when realized that my inspection sticker expires...

    I placed and order with you guys this week for the second time and just like the first it took you 3 days to ship it. The first time it actually took longer. And this is for items you supposedly had on stock. I do not understand this at all. Maybe is a laid back California thing, I don't know...
