have had a few of these in with carb faults but were 2 barrel type.basic checks first,is pcv valve hose under carb not split(runs to valve cover or oil cap on this model?).try driving without airfilter element for test,have had one in that looked clean but had a fine mist of oil on it that blocked and caused air starve and stall on power.Did both problems start at same time? or maybe you are chasing 2 probs.being a ute.I have had probs with rusting petrol tanks and blocked fuel filters

SOURCE: ford falcon gear not changing
Common answer for this problem is low trans fluid, if thats ok, then check your vaccuum line to the kickdown solonoid to see if it is not split or a hole, if you have cable, try adjusting it near the carby, lastly, it could be the clutches in the trans are shot, remember we are here to help as best we can, so I hope this gets you going, good luck.

Problems can be the ignition module on the side of the distributor. (very common) or the ignition coil under the inlet manifold. Both a little hard to access but can be done. The module fault usually kills the motor completely, often wont start cold. the coil often causes missing. Id reccoment changing the module first. Mark the base to engine block with whiteout. loosen the locking bolt on the distributor and rotate it so as you can get at the screws on the module with a stubby screwdriver. Disconnect the multiplug remove the screws and module.replace the module putting the silicon grease on it as per the old one. (grease usually supplied with the new module. Replase the module and multiplug. Turn the distributor back to its marked position and tighten the bolt . Done Usually fixes the problem.
