Question about 1995 Ford Windstar
When engine is cold (morning starts) I have to put something on the gas pedal to keep the engine idling until warm and then it will stay running.Also when starting the van I need to press on the gas pedal to start it warm or cold. A clicking sounds happens when engine is running.
Possibly an idle air motor for your idle problem or a vacuum hose off.

Sounds like one of your chambers isn't firing. Run your car for a few minutes, shut it off then pull your plugs one at a time and see if one of them is wet. Might just need a new plug.

your problem appears to be the idle control motor located on the air intake manifold it is a small motor that goes bad quite often. Other items that can cause this is a bad /clogged air filter or a tune up (spark plugs and wires), or clogged fuel injectors. to clean the injectors you can buy a container of fuel system cleaner and pour it into the gas tank and as you drive it cleans the system.
Once the fuel system is cleaned via a tankful of cleaner & gas then the idle controller motor would be next on the list to be replaced.
Good Luck !

what codes are present? If it is lean codes P0171/P0174 problem is most likely the orings leaking between upper and lower intake manifold if this is a 4.0L
