Hi

This sounds decidedly like a faulty or dirty MAF sensor, which is located right next to the air filter box.

Unplug the wiring plug to the MAF and if all or most of the power is restored then you either need to clean or renew the MAF sensor.

1996 Ford Windstar GL jumped time


The camshaft is driven by the crankshaft by either a belt or chain. These have to stay in line or in (time ) with each other, If not the engine may not run correctly, if at all or worse can break stuff. In case you dont know, the crankshaft pushes the pistons up and down and the camshaft opens the valves so gas can go in and exhaust out. ( very simplified )

and the never ending sending unit in the tank this has a filter on it and could be clogged with debry also the gas you use could be causeing the sluggish ness cheap gas has debry in it
