91 Aerostar 3.0 Starts then Stops

OK, so I just bought a 91 Aerostar for dirt cheap. I replaced the starter, which I knew from jump was a problem.

Now, I'm able to get it to start, but unless I keep the gas pedal pressed, it dies in idle. If I put it in drive, its almost impossible for me to keep it running, it just dies.

The guy mentioned to me that it did overheat one time.

Is it a possibility that I have to replace the head gaskets? If so, how difficult is it to do on the Aerostar?

I'm looking for any pertinent advice that might be helpful.

Hey WarlockLord,
I have a 91 Aerostar also, I've had a similar problem during the winter. My van just died on the highway, and i had no spark. Prior to that, I experienced the same problems. After exhaustive troubleshooting, and buying a code reader, i found a loose wire on my ignition module. I cleaned it and now my van does not hesitate or want to stall out.
Post back and lemme know if this helps u out, good luck buddy!
