It could be a few different things. Do you hear a clicking during turn over? Its most likely your starter motor. After time the magnets wear down, and the bendix gear will not extend out to your fly wheel. Its actually a very common problem. I hope thats it, becouse it gets more expensive after that. If you have the knowledge to pull the starter out yourself, which is pretty ez, you can take it to a auto parts store, and they will test it for free.

Starting point for firing order

Starting point is always cylinder 1, on straight engines at the front, on V engines front left. The gear wheel or crank sensor will register at TDC or just before. TDC can be found with a pencil inserted in the spark plug hole of cylinder 1
So for a 4 cylinder engine it's 1,3,4,2
6 cylinder straight, 1,3,5,6,4,2,
Cant remember the v engines but it's always left right etc.and from end to centre.

2002 gmc envoy stalls when turning and slowing down

I am going to assume the check engine light is not on.
I would check the throttle body to see if it needs to be cleaned, and check the idle air control valve to see if it is working. The computer controls idle speed by the amount of air coming into the throttle body.
The ac problem is probably something different such as low freon or a cooling fan problem.

Car no start problem is sometimes very difficult to confirm. You try all the possible things, but still you get no fault and problem is still the same.--------
In that case, you need to check few things individually.
Check the spark,the battery,the crank, the fuel and other most possible parts. Click this link below for more details:--

Do to the loss of battery power while changing your battery, your Engine Control Unit (ECU) has reset and need to re-gather information. It is also possible that your battery does not have a solid connection causing loss of power and loss of data for your ECU.

Check your connections and wiring to your battery to make sure you have a solid connection and no frayed wiring causing unintentional grounding, and insuring any corrosion has been cleaned from the terminals of your battery and the battery terminal clamps.

turn on your vehical and ideal it for 10 to15 minutes. Do not rev the throttle/engine during this time as your ECU will be gathering info from the idling and will adjust to compensate during this idle time. Typically you should be able to drive the vehical with no issues after this time. A 30 minute freeway drive following your idle should give your ECU a full set of info and your car should run smoothly after that.

also, look into using engine oil that isnt as thick...maybe a 0w-30
