Question about Ford Windstar

My 1999 Ford Windstar keeps stalling even though we changed the oil recently and the gas tank is full

    I have a 1996 F150 that has been stalling on and off for over 2 years. It will stall for a few weeks then be fine for months. It has dual tanks and will do it on either. The fuel filter, TPS sensor, plugs, plug wires, battery, cap and roter have all been replaced. Even an authorised ford dealership mechanic could not figure it out. It's been to 4 repair shops and all said they dont know. The gas tanks seem to build up pressure, a little gas will push out the caps. I've spent $1500 on this problem. If anyone knows what is causing this please reply. THANKS!

If it keeps stalling it could be an obstructed fuel filter, a weak fuel pump, or your tps(throttle position sensor) is faulty.

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.
