check to be sure number 3 coil is firing properly. a lot of times if a coil fails, you will see a burnt mark on bottom of coil. or just put another one on the vehicle.

Good Evening, I can understand your frustration with a misfire on your van. There are only a few things that go wrong with the windstars, mainly the ignition coil or the intake/plenum gaskets but i will not rule out spark plugs or spark plug wires. The first thing to do is try and isolate which cylinder is misfiring and then checking that spark is coming off that spark plug wire and going from there. I hope this helps point you in the right directions, and if you have any other questions please feel free to ask.

03 windstar misses and sputters when it rains,eng lite flashes then stays off 4 a while.then goes off. when dry out it runs it the coil pack

Could possibly be the coil pack has a crack in it, could also be plug wires have cracks in them as well, sounds like time for a tune up. Recommend replacing plugs and wires, and if that doesn't solve the issue then spring for the coil pack. Scanning the computer will tell you what code you have to help point you in the right direction as well. If you have any p0300-p0306 codes those are all misfire codes.p0300 is random multiple misfire, p0301-p0306 are individual cylinder misfires.

99 ford windstar (3.8)seems to misfire randomly when idling and can feel pulsations while driving

clean the MAF sensor first and also add some Chevron Techron fuel injector cleaner to 1/4 tank of gas. You may have a dirty MAF or a partially plugged injector.
