Question about 2001 Ford Windstar
Windstars are known for lean codes caused by upper intake plenum gaskets. Also, there is a small tube going into the air intake hose that will pull out if you tried to install an air filter. It goes into the air intake hose between the air filter box and the throttle body on the firewall side of the hose. Check it. As far as the EGR concern you would need to provide the exact code. The lean codes won't cause what you're describing. The symptom you're describing sounds more like a misfire. Windstars are known for ignition coils going bad due to hairline cracks allowing moisture in and causing the misfire. The coil is located behind the intake plenum. Also, windstars are known for fouling #'s 1,2 and 3 plugs with oil. Good luck. Be sure to have your rear axle and front subframe checked for cracks at a ford dealer. There's a safety recall on them and if it's too bad, Ford will purchase the vehicle for 1.5 times the book value if it's unsafe.
