My van has no revarse 97 ford winstar

Just about all you can do is check the transmission fluid level and condition. Unless the fluid is low its going to need another transmission or rebuild. Especially if you never serviced it or have gone too far between services.

Im trying to get my 03 ford winstar inspected i went to autozone to have them check it and they said its po171 and my van is running lean on one engine bank only allready changed the air flow sensor and...

Air Flow Sensor (MAF)---was changed why? Was it even tested in any way?

The PO 171 -- is an engine right side Oxygen Sensor reporting a lean condition

You have a repair shop diagnose that

Doesn't mean the sensor is bad
Could be a Vacuum Leak any number of places

Hopefully you changed the O2 Sensors at 100,000 miles
during Preventative Maintenance

What kind of battery is recomended fora Ford Winstar 1999 in terms of durability and capacity to feed the alternator properly?

There are two different engines Ford installed in the Windstar. The following information is assuming your vehicle has the 3.8 liter v-6...850 cold cranking amps, 750 cold cranking amps, 650 cold cranking amps, or 720 cold cranking amps. It is highly probable that your vehicle has the 3.8 liter, as 94% of Windstars had that engine installed. Hope this helps you out.
