2003 ford windstar, rough idle, weak acceleration, kinda sputtering

Asked by Nov 20, 2019 at 09:05 PM about the 2003 Ford Windstar Cargo

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hello everyone, so I have a 2003 Ford windstar with roughly 195k and it
started losing power, it has a pretty rough idle, weak acceleration, has a hard
time getting past 40-50 mph, feels like it wants to die but it hasn't so I've
been avoiding driving it but I need it running asap. I was told to replace spark
plugs and cables. Got those replaced and it seemed to help the rough idle
but by the time I got back back home it started to lose a lot of power and the
idle got rough again! I'm going to get it hooked up to a code machine
hopefully this weekend. Any suggestions or ideas what it might be?
Someone said it might be bad alternator, fuel pump, fuel filter and that's all
I've heard./
