2000 Ford Windstar - Stalls and shakes

2000 ford minivan sometimes feel like it will stall when started. It shakes a lot and you have to rev it up to keep it running. This not all the time.PLz help me!

Has the Check Engine Light come on? If so, have the vehicle checked for stored codes. Offhand I suspect a vacuum leak but that’s just a guess.

A dirty/defective Idle Air Control valve can cause that.

You could try removing the IAC valve and cleaning it and the throttle body with throttle body cleaner to see if that helps.
