Not given much to go on but first thing to check is the air filter , don't know your abilities but filter is in black plastic canister just to the driver's side of center under hood has black flip lever clamp in center and I usually have to loosen a hose clamp to get apart. depending where you drive this could get clogged in as little as 30,000 miles. the hoses connecting it to engine are about 3" in diameter. The filter is cone shaped and collects dirt on the inside.

Visit one of the larger auto parts stores and request the free scanner readout. This van has had problems with EGR and the #1 spark plug fouling. The tech will provide the code that should steer you in the right direction.

Ford windstar van, 2003


I had a small plastic piece replaced in the transmission and it solved the problem(2007). My car was still under warranty, so it only cost me about $100.00. The actual cost was closer to $900.00 because of the labor involved. I used the Ford Dealer in Schulenburg, Texas. They would know exactly what you are talking about, if you ask them.
