Question about 2001 Ford Windstar
U need to replace the plenium gaskets on the bottom( 6 in all) and the isolator bolts that hold the plenium down to intake. purchase new designed parts that is the source of your problem. I had a 2003 model doing the same thing and this fixed my problem. Bad parts from factory so u will have to buy the new designed parts.

The codes are on the internet
Lots of vehicle info there
Codes have nothing to do with replacing any parts
Only parts that are tested & fail- get replaced- if they are
the problem with the system fault

SOURCE: Code #P0171 & code #P0174
The most common problem on a Ford with these codes is deteriorated PCV hoses. Check the hoses from the PCV valve to the intake manifold. Pay special attention to the rubber elbows. They often crack on the inside curve and the crack is hard to see.

P0171 is system too lean bank 1, P0174 is too lean bank 2, and 302 is misfire bank 1. Look for vacuum leaks. If you don't find them, put a vacuum gage on it can check. The P0171 is almost always a vacuum leak. If not other possibilities are front O2 sensor is too old and should be replaced (if mileage is greater than 100k then replace). Try injector cleaner. Misfires are usually bad spark plugs, but could possibly be caused by insufficient fuel. I've never had a car of mine in bad enough shape to have that error.

i will try to help. 171/174 indicates lean condition in engine. the mass air flow sensor is located in the rubber tube going to throttlebody. you can try to clean it. using mild carb cleaner safe for sensors, remove sensor from tube. spray clean the tiny wires located in the cylinder. do not touch them, they are very delicate. these engines are also notorious for leaking intake gaskets and faulty pcv valves. these will all set these 2 codes. feel free with anymore questions.
