Question about 2008 Smart fortwo
OK , even though it is hard to know without physically checking the car , but my guess is that possibly you have air in the radiator as first option. So what you need to do is open the temp gauge sensor (located in the back , top of the engine) and please make sure to open the lock and not to lose it as you will need it to tighten the sensor in its place. Open the water bottle and pour water in it and let the water come out from the back (the sensor) , you will see air bubbles coming out with the water , but keep on pouring water till you see no bubbles what so ever. put sensor back in its place while water bottle is full and while water is still coming out from the back to make sure that no air escapes inside with the water.You might need another person to help you pouring water while you are in the back. Start the car and let it warm up and let it run till it gets to 100 temp and watch how fast it comes back to 80 for couple of times , and while car running check the water bottle cap if its loosing any water. Let me know if you need more help Good luck
