WOW I bought my car in for a Quote on a clutch after I had a service at the local Nambour dealer I bought the car from and was told I need a clutch kit and the parts are not covered in our warranty. Bill was going to be $1600 on top of a $400 service on a Suzuki Alto. I took the car to Jose St and not only did I get good advice but he looked at the Alto and adjusted the clutch for free so it works without grinding the gears.

Excellent service turned up unannounced when my A/C packed up although they were busy they took the time to have a look and fixed it for me at no charge as it was a simple fix. They have won me and I will not need to look any further for a trustworthy mechanic.

Greg H.

Simply the BEST mechanics we have been to. Honest, timely & they gave me a full comprehensive report so I knew exactly what was happening with the car & they gave me a 10% seniors discount!

I had my brake pads done and they work great – no problems at all. Young guy was very friendly and dropped me at work and picked me up when the car was ready. Another chap went through every item on the invoice and explained what they did and why (they quoted first). Very good service.

Kay H.

Excellent guys and excellent old school service. Wouldn’t take my car anywhere else. Have even moved away and still take my car back there to be serviced. They are so very obliging, they keep you informed the whole way and will go out of their way to assist. You couldn’t ask for better mechanics.

Penny D.

These guys are awesome. So nice and friendly and the best thing of all they don’t rip you off and charge you for repairs that weren’t needed or necessary. Quick and easy to deal with. I would recommend them to anyone especially if you want things explained properly. Very pleased.

The team at Nambour Car Service go above and beyond their job description. They take the time to discuss your service needs and when the job has been completed they provide a comprehensive overview of the work that they have done both written and verbally. Our family have been customers of Nambour Car Service for a number of years. Denis runs a very professional service centre and has an excellent rapport with his customers.

Nev H.

For the last 5 years we have taken both of our European cars to Nambour Car Service and have been very happy with the service, price and quality of work. We do recommend.

Max R.

Great communication – very detailed rundown about every piece of work done, and love how they tell you about upcoming jobs. Very reliable and friendly service.


I came away very satisfied with the car service I received. The team were friendly and explained everything clearly. I appreciated the affordable price, honesty, integrity and peace of mind I was left with.

Need to Tune Up your Car? Book a Nambour Engine Tune Service

An engine tune is required when the tune components in your engine are clogged, old and worn, or when the manufacturer’s schedule requires it. Tune components in poor condition will cause rough running, poor engine performance, poor fuel consumption, engine stalling, spark plug misfires, excessive emissions and in extreme cases can cause serious engine damage.

Since 2003, Nambour Car Service has served as the premier car tuning service in Nambour and surrounding areas, combining superior workmanship with a dedication to customer satisfaction. Our team promise thorough engine tuning services which deliver results, optimising all engine components.

Through general and advanced diagnostics our mechanics ensure that each car is safe and prepared for the roads ahead.

Our Nambour Car Tune Up Services Involve the Following

An auto tune up involves the replacement of spark plugs (on petrol engines), and replacements of the air filter and fuel filter. Throttle body cleaning, ignition timing adjustment (where applicable), and idle and mixture adjustments.

  • Spark Plug Replacements
  • Air Filter Replacements
  • Fuel Filter Replacements
  • Ignition Timing Adjustments
  • Throttle Cleanings
  • Full Electrical Diagnostics, and more

We offer one of the best car tuning services on the Sunshine Coast. Our experienced team delivers superior diagnostics and adjustments, utilising state-of-the-art equipment to address every issue. Car tuning allows our mechanics to more effectively identify problems with your engine – and then correct those problems.

Issues Experienced when your Car is in Dire Need of an Engine Tune Up

Worn out engine components wreak havoc, causing:

  • Increased fuel consumption
  • Increased heat output
  • Increased emissions
  • Decreased displacement ratios
  • Decreased filtration quality
  • Decreased horsepower

The engine is the heart of every vehicle and, when that heart fails to beat steadily, vehicle performance suffers. The overall speed, economy and power of each vehicle is directly impacted by the engine.

Therefore, it’s critical to maintain all components to optimal standards. This is why our team offers comprehensive tuning services, ensuring that Australian, European, and Japanese car makes and models are cared for properly.

When More Investigation is Required…

In some cases the car tune components may not be the cause of a fault and advanced engine diagnostics may be required.

The vast majority of engines these days utilise complicated mechanical and electronic systems with extremely fine tolerances and precise adjustments. For example, fuel injected engines use a vast array of sensors and actuators. To test and service these vehicle components accurately, expensive electronic diagnostic equipment is required.
