Start with a scan of the PCM to see if it has stored any trouble codes. Sounds like it may be running on 3 cylinders since it vibrating and trying to stall, low on power.A PCM scan should at least point to the cylinder that is bad.A 3.3 is a V-6, not a 4 cylinder. Those had alot of issues with breaking the cylinder heads where the rocker shaft bolts on, this could cause the noise and other issues you described
