Bloody unbelievable. Felt like We were driving a different ute yesterday after you all finished with installing the HD clutch and remap. It has way more grunt and power. Glen cruised the hills today no more pedal to the metal doing 45. Can't thank Tim and the boys enough. - Joanne ODonnell

About Lowes

When something is not quite right with your vehicle, experience has shown that it can be put down to a few common - and sometimes not-so-common reasons. Our customers trust us to know exactly what those reasons are... and get their vehicles back on the road asap.

We can diagnose and repair any fault in most makes and models of cars and four wheel drive engine management systems - both petrol and diesel, including auto electrical problems. So whether you need an engine tune up or an EFI fault diagnosis, we can help you.

What to expect

When you contact us, you’ll be looked after the moment you step through the door, pick up the phone, or speak to us at at an offsite event.
When you leave your car in our hands, you’ll always speak to the person looking after your car - or knows exactly what’s going on with your car.

We’re the best in Warrnambool for good reason. Not just because of our large premises or wide range of services for both diesel, auto, and electrics. We still believe in good old customer service.

The team at your service

Owner, and head mechanic Tim Lowe leads the team of qualified mechanics who have experience of more than 40 years between them.

  • Tim Lowe: Director; Petrol and Diesel Mechanic
  • Peter Tickner: Office Manager
  • Simon Van Ginneren: Parts Manager
  • Grant Stansfield: Diesel Specialist and General Mechanic
  • Brenton Burrow: Diesel Technician
  • Jeff Swney: Apprentice Auto Electrician
  • Bradley Malone: Apprentice Mechanic
  • Ash Daffy: Apprentice Mechanic

Tim believes a good mechanic is more than someone who can service and do repairs on vehicles - they also need to be proactive, communicate well, do the job well (or not at all), and realise the value of good customer service.

That’s the type of mechanic - and the service - you’ll get at Lowes Auto Repairs, Diesel & 4x4.

We have the latest equipment in vehicle diagnostics, diesel performance tuning equipment, 4x4 spares, accessories, and ECU upgrades.

So whatever your vehicle, whatever your industry, you can be sure we have the right product - and a first class team to give you the best service around.

What’s more, we’re an approved repairer for National Warranty Company, and Australian Warranty Network - your extended warranty for second hand cars.

Hey Tim. The work you did on my 79 series is great. The increase in power and torque is fantastic. Seamless and smooth delivery across a nice wide band from 1,000 RPM in fifth with no holes or flat spots. The new exhaust is nice and quiet at highway speed, but you still know it's a V8...You've made a new car heaps better to drive. Thanks. - Peter Rowley
