Question about 2000 Ford Windstar
Look for a stuck Idle air control valve. It should be on top of the motor. There are two techniques to work through this issue. One is to thump it with the handle of a screwdriver (if it's stuck this will sometimes help) and the second is to remove it and clean it and replace it. Long term solution is to replace the idle air control valve motor as an assembly.
Also, you need to check for holes in the rubber hose between the motor and crankcase (PCV valve to motor hoses). If anything is squishy soft or oily, that indicates a hole.
Also make sure there are no leaks in the air ducts from the air filter box to the throttle body.
