Santro LE Zipplus 2002, self acceleration proble

Hi, I bought Hyundai Santro LE zipplus in oct 2002. Have done no alterations of any kind. I drive at least 1000 km every month in and around bangalore in all seasons. There is a peculiar problem with my car more frequent in hot weather conditions. The engine gets auto accelerated to its upper limits even when i release the accelerator, and it keeps in that high pitch when i hold down the cluth pedal. If i am still on the move controlling the speed with difficulty, it makes puffing zerks and comes to a total halt and accelerator pedal looses its purpose. I observe lot of heat accumulating under the bonnet. I stop the vehicle and resume journey after some 10 times. I have shown to many hyundai service centers, but they do hopeless investigation and make weird fixes like sensor lines, pedal related, wiring etc.... and bill me a ransom. The problem will reappear after I drive as usual on my normal work day in arid conditions. I am fed up with the level of expertise/interest shown by the service center. I have now decided to show it to a stree side mechanic. GOD BLESS ME and my SANTRO.

Check your battery cables, although new they may be loose or corroded. Sometimes from factory they're coated with grease that can form resistance.

Accent 2001 won't start after driving for only 100km

you may want to see if your catalitic converter is clogged up. I had a car that had that problem, when you drove too much it would die and wouldn't start for a long time after that. I had the converter replaced and now it drives just fine. May not be the same problem but it could be. and most muffler shops will check for a small fee if not for free.
