sounds like oil fawled plugs. the valve stem seals are a issue for windstars. also look to see if you have a vacuum leak at any of the hoses that go into the engine.

I would be willing to bet your engine control computer is mailfunctioning. they usually put them either under the hood, under the dash or kick panel on the passenger side

if you are just jiggin around town does it seem to work fine as long as you are not going any faster than 40 MPH. If you are having this problem only while going highway speed the next time it does it pull over and look underneath the engine and check to see if the Catalytic converts are glowing red, if they are then you have a blocked or partiality blocked cat.
I have a 98 3.8 that is doing the same sort of thing but only at highway speeds and is very frustrating but a buddy of mine is a mechanic and suggest the above to see so I thought I would forward this on.
