Everyone has their opinion. But the facts speak for themselves.

5th gear done a rolling road test after using redex for a week. I think it was 6 bhp recovered from dirty injectors.

Not bad for a £2 product!

You beat me to it lol

Waste of time the mechanics in our repair depot says it is snake oil they told me to take all the spark plugs out and spray wd40 into the cylinders and leave overnight clearing carbon deposits from the engine - i tried it and hey presto it did clean up the tops of my pistons!

Modern petrol especially the high end stuff has additives that do essentially what this stuff does so there is not reason to buy Redex!

This is a site about saving poor folks money so dont buy this and save yourself £2!
Besides last time it was on offer at £1.25 in Asda!
Cue the counter-arguments!

I'd much rather see the actual spray pattern before and after, rather than a stupid rolling road test. With this still in the petrol it WILL lead to a slight increase in bhp in a higher performance engine with a higher compression ratio, simply because adding such additives increases the RON value slightly and the ECU will adapt.

Redex is a fuel system cleaner, not an octane booster!

Standard 95 petrol will not turn into 100 Ron just because redex has been added

It will increase slightly. Octane increases when the fuel detonation is more controlled/delayed. Look at what's in a bottle that says Octane Booster and compare with Redex
Oh dear, I wish I could see the wood from the trees! I have been tempted with Redex for a long while but now I don't know!

But Octane booster doesn't work at all! If you want more octane you would be better off with a higher quality fuel.

My car will only run on 100 Ron + so I'm limited to shell v power ect

Remember if you do it you have to leave it for 24 hours or longer the better - i left mine for 2 days!
I have the photos of the before and after somewhere!
If you have a borescope i would use it to check before and after or buy one they are only a tenner on amazon and well worth it for all sorts of things like finding pipe blockages, retrieving stuff dropped down the sink into the ubend and loads more its an essential part of my toolkit now!

Yeah but she is skint and Forte is about £14 and she is getting her handsome car mechanic neighbour to do the work like any sensible lady - why do it yourself when you can get a man to do it for free!

Its like petrol cars its caused by short journeys and not being used much.
I also learned that that is why your tyres go rotten - yip rubber rots if you dont use it every day thats what those small cracks are in your tyres rubber are - just took the wifes car for an mot and the mechanic says she will need four new tyres next MOT.

Diesels don't have spark plugs, so however free it is, it won't work

How old is the car? Forte does work, but depends on the problem.
Give me some idea of what the garage said to you, and why you think you need the DPF filter cleaning, symptoms etc and I'll help if I can. Have you tried to regen it by driving at high revs?

I used it to clean the pistons not DPF but apparently the wd40 will coat the coke on the DPF then with rapid revs on a motorway journey is the best it loosens the already coated coke and burns off taking the coke with it there you go straight from the mechanics mouth!

And a diesel has glow plugs not spark plugs so there you go!
You have learned a lot here for free and so have I.
Never buy a diesel!

It's a yaris 2010

Initially it wasnt picking up speed in 5/6 gear and was slowing down to 40-50mph on motorway after being parked up for a while.

Took it to a garage and they said it may be the dpf that needs cleaning but you can try the fluid and drive the car to see if that works.

Me being me, didn't learn and the car had been parked in the driveway for another month and a half. I have been switching engine on this time though and revving upto 5000.

Today I noticed when doing this, the revs drop down to 1 or even 0 despite my foot still being on accelerator. When I take my foot off and then back on again, it started working again

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated!

Yaris a fine little car you made a good buy the missus had one last 5 years and not a problem but it was petrol and she has now bought an Toyota Aygo - Toyota are the most reliable cars you can buy just ask any mechanic "TOYOTA COROLLA" is a beautiful machine my best mate had one we used it to go offroad and places not even a 4x4 could go!
I digress however!

Might be the fuel pump?
What every single person should have in their car is an OBDII reader!
Get one and plug it in it will tell you more than any mechanic!

I can recommend this handheld one its the one I use and easiest to use for the ladees.
Believe me it will save you a fortune in garage bills - even if you just take in the code it gives you the mechanics will charge you £30 just for plugging theirs in to do just what this does!

ebay.co.uk/itm…iae

Then just lookup the code on google and hey presto for me that was the O2 SENSOR - garage quoted £250 i fixed it for £15!


38209540-0I6NB.jpg

You can even buy bluetooth ones for £5 that connect to an app called Torque on your phone - can do all sorts of wonderful things!

Yes I think this sounds like the best idea to try.

How or where does the wd40 go in for it to work ? Do I put into where I would put fuel in?
