Stalls at a stop

The most common cause is a dirty throttle body or a faulty idle air control valve.
The computer controls idle speed by regulating the amount of air coming into the intake.
Could also be a vac leak.

If the idle speed is wandering, check the idle air control valve and the throttle body for dirt and varnish. The computer regulates the idle speed by the valve.

My ford windstar 2001 act little funny while stop Idle

I'm not sure Ford calls it this but I suspect the Idle Air Control. If you have a chain auto parts store in your area, most will scan your computer to see if error codes are stored; call them first to see if they do this at that location.
