Heat related transmission problem on Galloper (not given in list).
1998 Galloper being driven yesterday on 500 km blacktop journey in the heat of Arabia developed "kangaroo petrol" symptoms at 200 km. External temperature was above 40C and rose to over 50C while problem became worse. Problem disappeared when temperature fell to below 39C as sun set and did not reappear on return journey during darkess. Obviously this is heat related but what was/is wrong?

Transmission oil level low is the biggest cause of transmission overheat as well as road surface temp. Air flow over radiator and under vehicle. All air deflectors under front must be in place and not damaged. Avoid overdrive in hig temp conditions. Stay in third gear.

Oil Life Monitor Resetting (KD, KE)
The engine oil life monitor will indicate when to change the engine oil and the engine oil filter - usually between 5 000 km (3,000 miles) and 12 500 km (7,500 miles) since the last oil change. Under severe conditions, the CHANGE OIL message may be displayed before 5 000 km (3,000 miles). The vehicle must not be driven more than 12 500 km (7,500 miles) or 12 months without an oil change.
The engine oil life monitor will not detect dust in the oil. If the vehicle is driven in a dusty area, be sure to change the oil every 5 000 km (3,000 miles) or sooner if the CHANGE ENGINE OIL message is displayed.
Reset the oil life monitor when the oil has been changed.
Press the INFORMATION SKIP button on the DIC control panel in order to display the OIL LIFE LEFT message.
Press and hold the RESET NO button until the display shows 100% ENGINE OIL LIFE.
most flywheel faults are heat related caused by a slipping clutch . Remove the transmission and inspect for , blue color heat spots . small cracks. scores caused by a worn out driven plate, run out check with a dial gauge. most flywheels can be machined as good as new . All ways fit a new replacement clutch kit with a new throw out bearing.
Sounds like transmission to me. Try contacting TRANSTAR should be listed on internet, and are located in several places across the country.They are a main supplier of parts to the auto industry for transmissions. In the past I have been able to call them up and ask about certain problems and they have been helpful...
Could be either or, or it could be neither. Is the "red light" a transmission temperature warning light? If so, the fluid is over heating and the heat sensor is turning the light on...Check fluid level and the condition of your fluid...if it's off colored and smells burnt, you better have it flushed, refilled and a new filter installed. Heat will kill a transmission faster than anything. Check the transmission cooler, most montero's had a cooler installed on the front of the vehicle by the radiator...the cooling fins need to be clean, no bugs or debris so air flows through it. Have your vehicle scanned also, if you had a transmission code the computers memory will probably still have it stored, this will be helpful with further diagnosis.
engine oil MOBIL 1 5W-50 fully synthetic, engine oil filter must get from dealer genuine filter for it, if your car over 80.000 km must replace spark plugs and fuel filter, if your car over 65.000 km or after last transmission service have driven another 65.000 km it's due for transmission now, transmission filter oil and oil pan gasket must get from dealer, may be need for air filter and pollen filter, it's depend on condition of filters, must check wheel bearings and brake pads and brake disc, and also be need brake fluid, if brake fluid older than two years, and normal basic check,
The transfer case is a chain driven unit and if the chain wears and gets slack or if some other component related to the chain fails it will "slip" over the sprocket teeth under a load making a banging sound as the chain binds. Find a flat blacktop parking lot, while in 4WD and in drive idle the vehicle slowly (at about 5 MPH) straight ahead. No noise? Now trun the vehicle as sharp as you can either dirrection (you may have to give it a little throttle to maintian speed) Now is it making the banging noise? If so it more than likely is the transfer case. Small debris can lock the transfer case in 4WD also. Hope this helps.
hi this cracking noise could be something as simple as the heat shield/guard between the exhaust pipe and underbody ? it could be contracting /expanding due to heat from exhaust ? especially if stopped after high speed /long journey ? however just to put mind at ease may i suggest you pop to local w/shop and ask if they could check shield for security ? would not think they would charge just to look ? if they are not busy ? but ask in case?
it sounds like an internal problem this can occur when the converter isnt installed properly or a number of other reasons
if a shop did it take it back
if you did it yourself give me more details on what you did and what happened and i can try to assist
