Hello out there. My 70 351c, 2v, auto is running a bit weird. Kind of out of the blue
it has started to idle roughly and diesel quite a bit when turning off car. Also, the transmission is seeming to shift more crisply or harder than before. It used to shift from 1-2 and 2-3 smoothly. Also, I'm not sure if this is my imagination or not, but the brakes feel different also(drums all around). Feels like they need a lot more pressure put on them to stop the car. Seems mostly at slow speeds, like when coming to a stop sign. Any ideas? Auto kickdown problem or vacuum problem? Only when driving slow or idling does it seem not quite right. Runs great at cruising speed and if you jump on it to pass a car it doesn't miss a beat. Just flies on by the other car. Help please!!
Thanks!!

Sounds like you knocked a vacuum hose or three loose. Since all of this is happening at once, take a look at the vacuuum tree on the firewall behind the engine first.
