Question about 1996 Ford Windstar
On the back of the motor (you can get at it by removing the engine cover in the van)... there is a boss on there that has "eighty gazillion" vacuum lines on there. Check each and every one to make sure that it is on its nipple and that the line itself has not cracked or broken due to heat/age.
Also, consider that a motor may not signal an error condition on the idiot light or misfire to have a vacuum problem. The problem may have developed over time, and you have just not noticed it because the performance of the engine has been decreasing ever so slightly over time. You just don't notice it because it didn't happen overnight AND it's not missing or anything obvious...
