Hi all!

I bought a Hyundai Galloper in March 2009. Since then I've been dealing with trouble with it. First, it automatically turns off when I stop at traffic signals. Not all the time, but in one drive it must do that. But when I changed the air flow meter, it's OK, but now I am facing another problem.

Problem is that the RPM automatically goes up from 1 to 2, and stays on 2 most the time. Sometimes it's down automatically, but just for few minutes, and in that time, if I switch off the Galloper, then I have to wait for HALF an hour before starting it again.

Please somebody tell me about it. I already changed fuel pump + air throttle control, but the problem is still there. Please please somebody tell me what to do. My Id is adnanparvez@hotmail.com

My SWB Galloper sold 3 months ago since the engine broke off and radiator water leak in the cylinder chamber.

Sold for QR5000 without engine.

Today I bought another one, long wheel base 2003, model automatic. Mileage is only 89400kms, full spec with leather seats. Dual A/C and 8 speakers Kenwood sound system.

Hope a new days with new wife LWB will be better for next 4-5 years!

I bought a used 1999 Galloper, automatic, gasoline, about 7 years ago. Constant cooling problems, even when I replaced the radiator. Over heating also caused me to replace the engine. I live in Costa Rica where we have some great mechanics, but all that I have talked with recommend that I replace the gas engine with a diesel. Gasoline here is about US$6.60 a gallon, diesel is a bit cheaper. My Gal is very comfortable and has black leather seats.

All in all, I like the vehicle, but don't look forward to the day that a freeze plug rusts away or the engine overheats again.

I live in Tambor, Puntarenas, Costa Rica and would love to find a good Gallopher mechanic. I own a 98 diesel in excellent condition, except it smokes and I have trouble passing inspection.

Please I want to ask you.

I face a problem of overheating in the engine of my Galloper 2 Exceed 1999 petrol.

The temp on the screen is in the middle, but the engine feels really hot and overheated.

Do you know any expert mechanic in Lebanon who can treat the engine overheating for the Galloper 2?

What could be the problem that my Hyundai Galloper 1999 uses so much gas?
