Ford is the worst when it is low on water. Also check the heater control valve to make sure it is not losing vacuum at higher speeds. The faster the engine runs the less vacuum you will have.http://s237.photobucket.com/user/bestdeal21/media/PICT0613.jpg.html

The heater runs off of a vacuum circuit. When you accelerate,vacuum goes down and there goes your heater.

There is a vacuum resevoir that is suppossed to store it during these conditions. It may have a bad check valve.
I'll assume that you have no temperature gauge in the dashboard that indicates coolant temps.
Windstars have a lot of problems,I've seen/heard.

I have problems with my 98 chevy k1500 pickup on the highway. Once i hit about 65 mph it wont accelerate and it backfires. also, after i come to a stop and try to accelerate up to highway speeds again,...


If it is running bad enough to be backfiring, the Check Engine light should be on. I would start with scanning the engine computer for fault codes.
