  1. Hello, new here...purchased last week a 2006 Pulse, Diesel, but it cannot seem to shift or move anymore. engine runs and the gearbox kind of wants to go but slips (?). There is a loss of engine and or gearbox oil evident under the car. As I have no idea nor a manual for the Smart, can someone answer me the following: Is the gearbox and engine oil filler the same (ie engine); what oil is being used in the gearbox, if any? And where is the fill spout located? Is the only dipstick one for the engine oil? Yes I know, stupid ...but rather than guessing...expert advise is needed. If there is an expert in Nova Scotia....would be great to hear of him. Perhaps I got taken and bought a real heap of junk...but it looked so good, haha... Pm or comment pls. Thanks!
  2. Hello all! My Smart sat idle in my garage for about a year and a half, until i could find a proper electrician to fix my broken SAM unit. After, finally, i 've brought it back home i noticed that the gearbox often fails to automatically up-shift and have to "help" it manually. When it fails to shift, i notice that the engine is revving but seems it needs a few more RPMs to shift. Also when trying to rev it out of gear, it only reaches ~3200 RPM, and the accelerator pedal is "dead" in the upper half. It is true that i don't quite remember how much RPMs i was getting about a year ago before the electrical problems. So, my questions are as follows: 1. How much RPMs do your CDIs get when revved while stationary (and in neutral, of course) ? 2. Is it more likely to be a gearbox issue or engine one? I must mention that the engine seems to run as smooth as ever with no black smoke or rough starts. Also the gearbox works perfectly in manual mode. LE: Sorry if/for posting in the wrong subcategory. Only now i've observed it's an area for mdifications
  3. Hello everyone! Recently purchased a 2006 Grandstyle 0.8 CDI for my brother about 2 weeks ago, and am thinking of purchasing one for myself (1hr commute on south western ontario highways to Waterloo for school)... Currently own a petrol bug that just seems to drink way too much gas in comparison to the adorable smart car. Thinking of getting a CDI just for fuel mileage even though they are about 11 years old now However I drive a lot on awful roads to get to school and to get to work. Near Waterloo (back country roads) does anyone have any experience ? Also, any advice on safety ratings? My boyfriend is very "large truck" oriented and believes it's a death trap.
  4. I removed a couple of hoses from my 2006 CDI. I did this to make space to remove the intercooler. But when I disconnected the hoses, a liquid came out, which it seems like water with coolant. Does this type of car uses water as a coolant? If so, were shall I add water to replace the one drained from the hoses???? Thanks for you help.
  5. Hello, Our smart's AC has been down for a while now. We looked into it, and we realized that one of the AC pipes is broken. It snapped at the right end of the pipe. It's dangling and it's been making loud noises whenever we start driving the car... We have no idea why it snapped and broke or when... We bought it second hand about 2 years' ago and it came without any AC already, but at the time, we didn't hear any noise and didn't realize that one of the pipes actually snapped... Does anyone know if there's a recall on these 2006 Diesel AC pipes? I tried looking for it online but couldn't find anything. If there isn't any recall, can anyone recommend a place to fix it and for approximately how much? Thank you, Lucy
  6. From 450, original block heater cord. $10. Located in Aurora, ON SOLD
  7. $3000, located in Aurora ON This Smart has been well maintained, kept very clean. It has served me so well as a daily driver over the years and I have mixed feelings about parting with it, but I'm treating myself to a new one :-) The B service was just completed (Oil, filter, air filter etc.) and it was noted that the front brake pads will need replacing soon and the front right coil is broken. Summer tires were new last year. Rear cargo cover. Block heater installed at the dealership with cord.
