Engine would die right after ignition. Would spit and sputter, idling at very low RPM if I kept pushing gas pedal and slowly released. If I could get it in gear w/out it stopping, then it would run until I stopped for a traffic light etc. This problem comes and goes, worse in cold weather.

I am thinking of purchasing a 2001 windstar with 105,000 miles, for around 3500. Is this price somewhat in the ballpark of what you paid for yours?

Check the ICV. It is just right of the intake and left of the air filter housing.
Common problem on these cars. You can replace or just clean.
When my 2000 WS has idle problems I tap the metal cylinder and unplug then re- plug the electric connector and the problem goes away.
