Ride: el sapphire falcon

Location: Perth

hi all i just bought a el 4l falcon with an automatic stranmission and its started to have some problems with changing gears.
once it gets hot there is a serious thud when it changes gears and now its started to nearly stall when i slow down to turn as if it doesnt want to go down a gear.
ive had a look through here and couldnt find anything remotely close to this.
any ideas?
thanks heaps.
