Hate to say but I believe your head gasket needs to be changed

You have a 2.7l right?? Pull the dip stick on the left side of the motor- if that has a yougurt looking consistency on it then yes, you have a blown head gasket for sure. Btw those motors typically stop running due to sludge ( build up of carbon and oil) that prevents the normal operation of the motor. Have you had any electrical issues with this car?? These cars are notorious for running poorly or not at all if the battery is no good. Looks like there are a lot of things to check. Let us know.
