A common problem on Windstars, there are two IMRC valves, the only way to fix them is replacement, which is not that hard. They are mounted on the end of the intake manifold and control runner length. There is a front and rear one, I'm not sure which one this is but you'll probably have to go to Ford to buy it and they should be able to tell you with the code number. The problem will not affect driveability that much, but if you have emissions testing at your location, this will likely cause it to fail.

Forget that Dealer. They do not want your business because, they are capable of repairing both your vehicles. You need to find a good repair facility near your home, before you need one. Should have done that before dealer warrantee was up. You can't solve theses issues unless your a knowledgable auto technician. Do not drive any of todays vehicles with check engine lights etc on dash and all the other issues you have. Everyone is trying to save money hoping things go away. We no longer live in the 1960's. Theses are expensive cars to buy and maintain. There are very few so called auto mechanics with even basic electrical knowledge to even attempt to solve todays technology on a vehicle and no training avail for them. Did you drive the vehicle with a tech riding with you? Did they drive it with you riding in it? Was it acting up when you took it in? Forget the service writer at the dealership and get the person who has the task and knowledge of your veh systems. If they don't mention a road test with you present, they have no intention of finding your problems. I used to own a Trans Repair Shop. You got drilled for a half hour and I needed a years history on the vehicle or I turned the job away. Also I was very clear on the costs involved as well as the % of even finding an issue.
