scan it yet? that be first. you put in new cop coils before new spark plugs/ why?
btw that effect is called misfire, when it misfires, power drops. example on a 4 cylinder if 1 goes dead, its not 3cylinder engine with 1/4 loss of power (its less due to 3 dragging 1 dead horse)
There are no less than 50 causes of misfire #1 all time reasons , bad spark plugs. due to never ever getting tuneup on time. #1 for 100 years, and running. your engine dont read statistics so can be 49 more.
2001 really., that year? wrong year, you did that.

open hood, look up under hood, see that EPA sticker,
showing just that?
the 3.2L was introduced in 2008/9
depends on what plugs, some are not gap settable.
usa spec, 2010.
read this FSM page.
hen servicing an iridium spark plug, do not touch the center electrode. The center electrode on this type of spark plug is slender and can be damaged if a mechanical force is applied. Do not clean or adjust the gap for the iridium spark plugs.
IF NOT THAT THEN,
old technology spark plugs, not above.
The 3.2L engine spark plug air gap specification is: 0.043-0.047 inch (1.1-1.2mm).
most likey cracked or broken plug or crossed wires. get some chicken pliers (plastic from home depot elec department) pull wires one by one to locate after you figure it out go to auto zone & they will clear code maybe loan you tool they offer that
