A Dyno result on a Mazda MPV with 198,000k, which we carried out at Oettinger in Germany. The dotted line is before the Revive treatment and the solid line is after Revive. It clearly demonstrates what effect a Revive treatment can have! Blue Trace = Power. Red Trace = Torque
Dyno Result from Revive Netherlands
Date: 12th JULY 2014 - Source: Revive Netherlands distributor - DIAGNOSES
A proven result carried out by our Distributor in The Netherlands - DiagnosES
This Dyno report is from a 2004 VW Transporter which was suffering from power loss and the vehicle owner decided to give Revive a try! Before he carried out the treatment, he ran a Dyno Test prior to using Revive (RED trace) and then ran a second test after the Revive treatment (BLUE trace).
These two Dyno tests clearly demonstrate the difference and the effectiveness of Revive Engine Cleaner & Power Restorer.
Performance Issues ✔
"Our first use of Revive was on a Vauxhall Insignia with 100,000 miles on the clock being used as a taxi so doing a lot of short journeys around the town it came to us having been elsewhere with no cure for a general lack of performance we code read the car and found it was low on boost although there was some there not sufficient for it to run properly we ran the treatment through after a gentle run up the road it was a different car to drive much more responsive the boost readings improved. the owner has been back and said fuel economy has improved and is well impressed with how it now drives. New customer gained.
The latest one i did was a 1.9tdi Galaxy it kept dropping into limp codes stored were for over boost this was proven on the road it was also down on acceleration although the customer had not complained of this. We could see the actuator rod of the turbo moving but obviously the vanes were jammed. On running Revive through the system i was pleased to have an exhaust extractor coupled as the amount of smoke that instantly poured out of it we would have been well fumigated. Upon completion a road test and it was like a different vehicle it would accelerate well and drive as well as a new one.
Had i not found Revive i would have been fitting new turbo's at horrific costs in both these cases." - Kelly Clarke Motor Services
Zafira Z19DTH - Sluggish ✔
"You can add my name to the people who 'have used it and were very happy with its results.' A 2008 Zafira Z19DTH 112,000 miles was transformed from the sluggish response below 3K, vehicle it was." - Tony, TA Repairs, Camberley
Peugeot 1.9 HDI - Major Running Issues ✔
"A Peugeot 1.9 HDI that had been suffering major running issues had be in and out of the main dealer, to a diesel specialist and a Peugeot specialist, had almost every related part changed even twice in some cases, everything failed to remove the DTCs. "As a last resort I sprayed some Revive into the inlet side of the turbo and after a short period the vehicle was running nicely again." - Autotune, Newcastle-under-lyme
Sticking Vane Fault ✔
"Just a quick note to say how good your Revive product is, I have used it several times now with a very good success rate, it has transformed the vehicles I have used it on. It has also saved one customer a lot of expense by not having to replace the turbo for a sticking vane fault. I will continue using your Revive product and will recommend to all our customers, I will also recommend to use this as a prevention and not just as a cleaning solution. Keep up the good work" - R&M Audi VW Service Centre - Mansfield
Audi A3 2.0tdi - Turbo Overboost ✔
"I thought I'd drop you a line to let you know how my Audi A3 2.0tdi is doing since having some issues with the turbo over boosting etc. After treating the engine & turbo with the Revive product the over boosting issues have stopped altogether and the engine now seems both quieter and smoother.
The acceleration has since improved and the car definitely has more pulling power through the gears. I have covered approximately 400 miles since the treatment at 77000 miles and there has been an improvement in the engine's economy. When accelerating hard from low speeds the exhaust no longer smokes like it used to. I'm very happy with the Revive product and would be happy to recommend it to other diesel drivers. It would appear to be a very effective product cleaning the turbo and throttle body as well as other parts of the aspirating system as well. I am sure that other users will agree that the Revive product will give a new lease of life to their engine and prolong the life of their turbos as well. Many thanks" - Philip Yeates
Audi A6 - Smoke at Start Up ✔
"The car, an Audi A6, has done 102800 miles of, in the main, motorway style driving, giving me on average 51 miles to the gallon. The power and acceleration were fine and the only problem seemed to be a bit of smoke at start up and when I accelerated away at speed. A friend then said to me that this may be due to the turbo charger getting clogged with carbon and this could lead to the turbo over boosting and giving me an engine warning light / breakdown error. As I was given details of 'Revive' some time ago I dug out the sheet to re-read the details. This seemed to be what was needed to do the job, so I booked my car in for the treatment whilst having my M.O.T test.
I was told that I may get smoke out of the exhaust for a mile or two after the treatment and this is normal, so I took it for a 'spin'. Carrying less weight in the car, as all of my works tool kit was left at home, it was difficult to judge if the car handled any different, but pulling away from roundabouts really put the fun back into driving! Was this now a new car or was I just driving it to prove the point? Only time will tell.
Now some 1700 mile further on, I can give true feedback on the performance of the car:-
Firstly no smoke, starting in the mornings and accelerating away on the motorway are smoke free. The acceleration from 50-70 MPH is stronger even carrying a heavy passenger load, you can certainly notice the difference!
I have monitored the MPG, not easy to give accurate feedback here on only 1700 miles, but the motorway MPG has increased from 55.2 to 55.4 but the town driving has stayed the same at 38.1 MPG." - Mervyn White
Volkswagen T5 - Slow and Sluggish ✔
"I have a vw t5 and it's been slow, sluggish and been dropping into limp mode every day since I've had it, whether pushing too hard through the gears or hitting 70 it would fail on me.. I took it to a garage and had a couple of things changed, sensors but that didn't cure it. I heard of this stuff and it arrived this morning!
I was sceptical as I'm sure a lot of people would be but I've just got back from a 150 mile trip and the transformation is amazing! Power is back through the gears, smokes a lot less out of the back and as much as I tried to get it to it wouldn't fault into limp mode!!
This product has made my van run like a dream.. I'm not affiliated with them in any way but just want to reassure anyone who may have the same problems as I used I have.. Will be buying another bottle in a years time to do as part of a service! 10/10" - Giles Hume

A life extension [ebay] ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Date: 17th May 2016 - Source: ebay.co.uk
A life extension for your variable geometry diesel turbocharger.
"I bought this after getting remarkable results from the complete kit, which comprises the liquid and a hand-pressurised squirty bottle. What it does is free off the variable vane system inside modern turbos as found on VWs, Volvos, BMWs, Skodas and similar. You go through a little ritual with it, firing the liquid into the engine air intake on a timed cycle (the instructions are on the squirter). In my case, it made an immediate and impressive difference to my 170,000 mile Volvo V70 D5, which was stuck almost permanently in limp-home mode because the air control vanes inside the turbo were jammed in position. This liquid cleaner won't fix the underlying cause of the jammed vanes (in my case, a pretty impressive oil leak) but it will buy you time enough to save up for the real fix (buying a new turbo). The instructions say that in some cases, more than one application is required to get the full effect, so I tried a second dose which is my I bought the refill: My only criticism is that the squirty thing I got in the original kit is not very well made and started falling apart during my second dose process. Unlike the other solutions to sticky vanes, which require the turbo to be opened up or taken off the car for cleaning (aka "Mr Muscle Oven Cleaner" fix), it's possible to use this stuff equipped with no more than a screwdriver and a semi-willing assistant who can read the tacho and press the throttle while you pump and squirt (as it were)." - misterbonduk

Good product [ebay] ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

GOod Product, seems to work well.
"Good product, seems to work well. Lots of white smoke comes out the exhaust. Recommend using this only when the car is parked on a flat surface, as slugs of the cleaner can settle in the intercooler." - richard_coyne
TDv8 RangeRover - EGR Clean ✔

Andrew Avis from Greg Tunstall Mechanical in Australia kindly sent us this picture of a TDv8 RangeRover. They only treated one side of the twin EGR system with Revive, then inspected the two sides and compared the difference:
Citroen C4 1.6Hdi - Oil over fill ✔
"After my local garage ruined my Citroen C4 1.6Hdi by overfilling it by more than a litre of oil I needed to find a solution. The car smoked like mad and would not pull from 1900-2500rpm. Performance was non existent. Some internet searching brought up a few products. After siphoning out the excess engine oil the car would run through the rev range but with little power. I first tried a well known catalytic converter cleaner. Power returned at lower revs but the car was still dead from 2500 revs upwards.
I used the Revive Turbo cleaner as directed spraying it directly into the turbo intake. The following test drive was incredible. Power all the way through the rev range and particularly between 2000 and 3500rpm where it is needed most for safe overtaking. I cannot praise you enough for what is an easy to apply product which does exactly what it says it will. Thank you for an amazing product." - Michael Loveder. Maxey Cambs.
Jaguar X Type 2.2 - Limp home mode ✔
"I had never heard of your Revive product until Stephen at The Cross Garage in Kirkintiloch suggested I used it to'try' and solve a year old problem on my Jag X Type 2.2 that I have owned from new! The car would go into limp home mode and over the last year I had replaced the EGR valve, fuel rail and pressure switch plus the map sensor. Revive did the trick, car ran better immediately, no Limp Home Mode. And more miles to the litre. Excellent!" - Bob Yarwood

really worked on my van, no more limp mode
"Bumped into these guys at Goodwood Festival of Speed told them of my vans issues and they explained to me what was happening to my turbo which made loads of sense. I am not really one for writing reviews as you can tell but this has really worked on my van, no more limp mode no more restarting the van a little bit more power
great thank you!"
2007 Ford Kuga - coughing and chugging [ebay] ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Date: 27th July 2016 - Source: ebay.co.uk
Didn't believe it could work
"2007 Ford Kuga - been coughing and chugging for months, with 125 thousand miles on the clock I felt sure it was time for new injectors/ expensive overhaul etc. I found Revive on you tube and liked the presentation but didn't think it could help my situation. Worth a try as a last resort so bought the started pack off ebay supplier. Followed the You tube video instructions (which didn't come with the product) and "blow me down" it's worked - no coughing and spluttering !"
"I'm going to do another clean in a months time as we now only do short runs in the car. Over the moon." - brammernm
Turbo Splutter [ebay] ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Date: 25th MAY 2016 - Source: ebay.co.uk
Found it easy to use and fair play it did the trick
"Every time I wanted quick acceleration the turbo had a splutter.
I decided to go for the cheaper option I then tried this product Revive. I only heard about it by word of mouth, Found it easy to use and fair play it did the trick up to now the splutter has stopped. I went on youtube and a video on there showed me how to use the product. All I can say is it did work for me." - moorbylady
