go to any national chain parts store and they will pull the code for you-I'd guess based on what you wrote that it is a crank or cam sensor, or a bad ignition module.

I have a 2000 suburban and when I start the engine it runs fine until I turn on the a/c. The idle drops almost to the point the engine is going to shut off.Could this be that my condensor is clogged or...

Sounds like the electrical load sensor that helps maintain the idle speed when extra current is drawn by the system is faulty or the connection to the sensor is poor. On later model vehicles the electrical load sensing is done by the Engine Management Computer.

Kia dies while driving (dashboard lights dies too)

Mine was doing this when I'd drive over bumpy roads. Noone could figure it out, till someone happened to check my battery cables. One of my battery cables was super loose and everytime I'd hit a bump, it would lose connection for a split second and shut the computer down, thus shutting off my Kia while driving.
Check the cables and make sure the cables are tight and the connections all look good.

200 Chevy Suburban -- trouble starting

Bad fuel pressure regulator. Located on drivers side of engine on fuel rail. Cost of part is around $70. Easy to replace. Buy the part, look at it, find the old one on the engine in the area described above. Pull the vacuum line off of it, if you see any fuel in the vacuum line it's bad. The vacuum line sucks up the fuel flooding the engine. Classic symptoms. Make sure to relieve the fuel pressure prior to removing or let it sit for a couple of hours, or over night. The leak will relieve the pressure over time. Simple clip holds it on, easy to get at. Make sure to remove both "O" rings prior to putting new unit on. Should solve the problem.
