2.0 TS GTV cutting out....and pink paint
I'm a returning enthusiast - who despite already having too many cars, find myself very seduced into buying a GTV. It's a form of 'I should know better' insanity but the temptation is such....!
There's a GTV on the bay, for which the seller has disclosed a recurring snag of it cutting out. He mentions that it's a crank/cam sensor problem, but I think both of these only have functionality on start up (unless that's a misconception..?)
If the thing cuts out randomely as the seller describes - can anyone point me in the direction of the likely cause please? I had a 156 2.4 JTD a while back and that developed a very regular cutting out snag - to the extent that the car was effectively disabled - turned out to be an RPM sensor which was putting it to sleep.
Lastly - red cars turning pink. Seems to be reasonably common, other than re-spraying, is there a way of dealing with this?
Thanks in advance of any replies with guidance, help, suggestions etc - much appreciated
