Question about 2007 Chevrolet Impala LS Sedan New Cars
A lot depends on how and where you are diving the car, and what you can do about repairs. I have found that, on average, cars at 10+ years old start requiring replacement of parts that are subject to wear or age, such as what you are experiencing. If you want to keep driving it, you should expect to be servicing sensors and other engine parts, brakes, suspension parts, fuel system parts, etc. to keep it running properly.
There are a lot of opinions out there (including mine), but I think there are two schools of thought on this.
Depreciation is a major factor, and at 10 years for a car that needs repairs, it really isn't worth much. So, if you can and have the time and tools to do most of the work yourself, this is the way to go as the total cost over life (including original purchase price) is a lot less than the cost of a much newer replacement vehicle.
However, if you cannot do any work yourself, repair labor costs will eat your lunch, and you are better off getting it to an acceptable working condition and then unloading it, going for a much newer low mileage vehicle. I would suggest if you go this route, be sure to get a decent power train warranty and that the new one is no older than three years.

Have the DIS module checked and the coil pack for cyl 3. If either/both of those need replaced, have it done and have the codes cleared. Then see if it clears the others.
You may need a TPS (throttle position sensor) as well.

Have you tried to checking the tensioner and the idler pulley? The idler is a fixed pulley on the driver side of the alternator. Most of the time this gets rusted during sudden change in the weather or its just the bearing inside it just worned off.

These things happens sometimes. Disconnect your battery for 15 minutes then reconnect it. Just the ground cable is all needed to remove for this
