Firstly, error#115 (Internal application error) refers to a problem on eBay's end. In my experience, it's an infrequent error that can usually be worked around by re-calling the API. Occasionally, waiting a few seconds is necessary. But, it's a pretty uncommon error, so I don't worry about it. More importantly, you are using the Sandbox, which isn't recommended for these types of read-only API calls, such as the Finding API. Just use the Production endpoint on live data. eBay is OK with that for read-only calls, and you can avoid the limitations of Sandbox, which tends to have a lot of bugs. Next, know that the category you are requesting is within eBay Motors. While you may be able to get away with using the GlobalID of EBAY-US, you should first attempt using EBAY-MOTOR, the proper GlobalID for the category you are requesting data from.
