Check the battery terminals and posts are shiny clean and tight. Check for loose wires and other terminals that may be dirty or loose.. Have the fault codes read

It doesn't sound like a bad cluster as much as it sounds like a loose or bad connection in the wiring harness somewhere. What I would do is locate the harness under the dash that feeds the instrument panel and move it around while the panel is not working and watch for it to begin working again. Or, if it is working at the time, watch for it to go out again. As you get closer to the bad connection, you will have to move the harness less to get the same effect, but you will need to try moving it from one end to the other. If that doesn't help locate it, you will need to start checking the connections. Most likely it is either in the connection that connects the harness to the instrument panel or in a connector that connects the primary under-dash harness to the instrument panel harness. If you have trouble locating it, you can look up the information at http://www.alldatadiy.com . You will need to purchase a subscription for your vehicle for $26.95 USD, but it will tell you the harness locations, connector locations, wiring diagrams, repair procedures, etc. Everything you need to know about your vehicle. (You are in Australia? I have always wanted to move there! I am in the United States.) Good luck.

Set your idle speed to mfg recomindation if that doesnt help check the dash pot that is what keeps the engine from stalling at sudden speed reduction

it depends on the trans but ford had alot of problems with though years with the overdrive shift kit it is a band in the trans and it pop out and break you need to take to local trans shop and let them look at it and tell them the problem and they will take the trans out and crack it up and replace the part that need to be replace before you have to replace the whole trans the ford dealerships dont have the best trans people hate to say that but it true take to someone who specialize in trans only

there should be a relay switch on the passanger side in the floor board up to the firewall or look in the manual for it.... if your car wont start cause its starvin for gas it could be the fix...find the switch or button and press it it restarts your fuel sending unit
