  2. Spin on Oil Filter Adapter

    Original (450) smart fortwo
    Back in 2007 I purchased a spin-on oil filter adapter for my 450 through SmartieParts.com. Recently, my adapter has begun leaking. I believe its because the gasket/seal is six+ years old, and it looks really flat...everything else looks great; no defects, scratches, cuts or other damages to...

    The Car Lounge
    Very cool commercial by Shell to demonstrate what an engine looks like from the inside running on their oil. No CGI was used--they actually made a transparent car and a 'running' transparent engine (I doubt it was self-powered but very accurate and very cool). The vid features a "making of"...

    smart Operation and Maintenance
    Took my Smart to the dealership for a 5,000 mile service (please don't flame me over this) & there is an oil leak. It's not a heavy leak, but it is a leak none the less.

    New Members Area
    We've had our Smart since February and love it. Glad to join the club. Uh, has anyone checked their oil? The dip stick has hash marks on the tip and an"F" which on a regular car would mean Full. The booklet says the oil should be midway between the two "bumps" on the stick which is about a...
