Hummm, 2000 rpm does not seem high, really. But another item to look at is your FAN. The clutch fan fails and drives the fan full engauge. Sounds like a jeep...massive sounding, relating to engine RPM, but not necessarily different.

I mentiont his because a trans does not typically fail and give a few hundred RPM. Usually a slipping sensation is described....

I would expect a "check engine" light and a code if your O2 sensor was bad. You checked codes, right?

Suburban battery not charging

If your battery isn't charging it is either because your alternator isn't putting out enough voltage or the battery has gone bad. With the engine running, check the voltage on the battery terminals. It should read 14.6, or a little lower, but definitely higher than 13. If the voltage is too low the problem is the alternator. If the voltage is reading over 14, the battery needs to be replaced. Are you certain the battery is not charging, or could it be that the battery is being drained overnight?
