Have you checked for diagnostic fault codes? Have you checked for spark and fuel pressure?

Do you have a voltmeter or test light? We can do all the testing by breaking the system down into four parts, each with a test point in the starter relay socket under the hood.

The 3.2 is a fine engine.

From your descriptions, you have two different problems that are likely related. The place to start is by measuring the battery voltage with the engine off and with it running, if possible. You could have a charging system problem, and bad connection, or something as simple as a bad battery.

Most likely a bad connection. One common place is where the smaller positive battery cable bolts to the under-hood fuse box.

Ok I will check and the other place will be where sir and is that the only way to take the battery out is from the passanger side under the finder.

You can measure the battery voltage at the test points on the driver's side under the hood without removing the battery. For those with the battery under the fender, turn the tires to the right to provide room to access the plastic shield and remove it.
