Some of the mk2 common faults are listed here (https://www.fordmpv.com/smf2/ford-galaxy-reference-library/galaxy-mk2-common-faults/), if you're after specific issues with the autobox and 2.3 petrol I can't expand much there, the coil pack(s)- depending on the setup used- will fail with age/ mileage, the autoboxes do have problems (as can be seen by the threads on this site!), but I don't know if auto gearbox faults are common relative to the number of auto Galaxies (and Sharans/ Alhambras!) made and still on the road!

Oh, and don't forget the ol' relay 30 problem, though it may be numbered differently on the mk2!
