Being that is so intermittent I would lean toward vapor lock as the culprit. Unless your check engine light comes on then it's a sensor or something else.

Failed Transaxle

Seeing as how you have been using it

Once you drive & keep going into fail safe-- your done

Pull it & rebuild it

Won't turn over


The battery may have the volts but the cranking Amps may be low in the battery(light will dim real low when trying to start). If the battery cranking Amps are good then the alternator is charging the battery.
If that is all good then the starter motor may need replacing

Engine cuts out


Although your pollen filter will not cause the engine to cut out, a lack of oil pressure will. Check your oil level. Then take your vehicle into a dealer soonest.

Glow plug problems. Engine won't start.


Did you ever find a solution to this? I have a 2000 Hyundai Galloper (basically the same car) and I am having the exact same problem. I have replaced the glow plugs 3 times in the past 12 months.
