Check coolant level in both Radiator and resorvoir, top off as needed, sound like air trapped in the heater system, try to bleed the air out and check the coolant level again.

What engine is in your windstar, 3.8 Ford or 3.3 Nissan?.

I do not know about Ford's but if it's Nissan engine, you are having air pocket in the system, bleeding air out of the Nissan engine does needs a little trick to do, otherwise the air will not comes out.

Cool air

Check the coolant level in rad when cold as if lo you will not get any heat at idle , then you may have to find where the coolant went, some
loss from evaporation is normal but most service centers top up coolant with regular servicing.
