    Sorry if this isnt the right Forum
    or outa line all together,
    Thanks for any and all input and idea's
    Well my neighbor has 1 for sale
    says it gets to operating temp
    and will quit but runs fine till then
    and will restart once it cools down
    he has no idea why or what causes it
    and said i could have it for 200.00
    its a very nice looking car for the $$
    if its a cheap and simple fix il buy it
    so do you K5'ers have any idea's or thoughts
    on what it might be
    Thankyou very much for your time in this matter

    cars like this are problematic and are nickel and dimers, im sure it wont be the last thing that goes wrong

    i would go with a componenet overheating on you such as coil pack, etc.
    check for spark, see if its blue or orange or white

    blue or white would be good, orange would be bad

    if nothing then is bad pack or bad crank position sensor


    good luck
