If it is not turning over at all, meaning no noise when you turn the key, it may be that the ignition cylinder (how you turn your car on via key) is faulty. If it does turn over but will not fully start then there is most likely and issue with the engine getting fuel or spark from the spark plugs. That requires a deeper diagnosis.
I would check fuel pressure so you can rule out pump. I had a bad pump right out of the box before. Also you may want to change fuel filter so you can rule out plugged filter. You have spark, sure seems like still no fuel.
Check the leads to the alternator and see if they are loose or unconnected. The starter malfunctioning would not make the engine die, just not turn over. Slugish turning would indicate a low batery but not malfunctioning starter. If the engine will run but not for long check the fuel pump or air leaks in the fuel system. Check all leads to the distributor, coil and sparkplugs, If the distributor cap is cracked or the distributor is loose it will create these problems.
Do you have spark? Do you have fuel? Which are you missing? TIP.A quick check for spark.........give it a spray of starting fluid....if it runs....you've got spark. No spark usually means......a bad coil or ignition module on the 3.9. No fuel is usually caused by a bad fuel pump.
