What a car!

Starting problem at lunchtime?
My car is a GTV 1.8 TS Ph2.
My latest problem is this:
I drive the car to work every day. In the morning the car starts fine. When I drive home in the evening, it starts fine.
If I try to start the car during the day, it sometimes doesn´t start. It turns over, starts for a few seconds, and then the idle goes down to almost zero, and the engine stops.
I have experienced some problems when driving too. Sometimes when accelerating from standstill the power disappears, and reappears a second later. This happens very rarely, but is very annoying.
When the ac is on the idle drops every now and then, and goes up to normal again.
Is it the crank sensor, and if so, where is it located on a 1.8 TS?
Are the two problems related?
