Revive is a safe water based, non toxic and non flammable fluid, using technology developed and used for the cleaning and maintenance of aviation jet engines, power station turbines, large marine diesel engines and now automotive engines.
The fluid is sprayed into the vehicle’s intake system before the turbo inlet whilst the engine is running. As the Revive fluid passes through the engine system it locks on to built up oily/carbon deposits and strips away a surface layer. These tiny carbonised particles are then carried away out through the exhaust system, without blocking catalysts and filters.
By performing three Revive cleaning doses on the vehicle, carbonised layers are removed gradually, making the engine cleaning process very safe. View this short video to get a first impression what Revive is good for and how it is working.
Revive is very easy to use, it is sprayed into the intake system pre-turbo, no need to remove or dismantle the turbo, just unclip the intake pipe.
Revive cleaning fluids are safe to use, biodegradable, non-toxic, non-corrosive, solvent free and non-flammable.
Variable nozzle / vane technology can be a major cause of turbo problems due to sticking vanes, Revive helps to clean the mechanism and restore normal movement.
Cleaning the turbo and other engine internals helps restore fuel economy, lost power and reduce exhaust emissions.
The technology behind Revive was developed for the aviation industry and power generation. It’s used to clean aeroplane jet engines and keep power station turbines in top working condition.
It does depend on the cause of the problem, if it is soot build-up related, then Revive has a very good record of helping. Your Garage may recommend trying Revive first, rather than going down a more expensive repair route. If the build-up is very bad, you may need to apply two treatments. Prior to making a purchase please carry out some basic diagnostic tests first. Using suitable equipment, check for vacuum leaks in related solenoids and actuators. Scan for diagnostic trouble codes to identify the fault area. If you are unsure seek advice from a Qualified Trade Professional. Revive is extremely effective at removing sooty carbon deposits from variable geometry turbochargers, however, it cannot compensate for split vacuum pipes, mechanically worn or seized components.
