First thing to do is to run some Techron injector cleaner through the gas tank, then a cleaning of the throttle body is also very important. For more information, check out, this forum is a wealth of information on Trailblazers and Envoys.

Engine light/ knocking sensor

The knock sensor is for the timing advance on your envoy. It will not be related to your sparkplugs. Your knock sensor will be screwed into the engine block, or under the intake depending on model. The V8 engine is under the intake.

O2 Sensor

not very, but I own an 04 envoy, same engine light troubles, figured it was the o2 sensor, so I took it to my mechanic to have him tell me which sensor, so I could replace it.  Turns out the sensors are fine, but the secondary air pump is malfunctioning and needs to be replaced.  This is apparently a very common problem with this car, and I would suggest having a diagnostic ran before replacing anything, and besides, if it was an 02 sensor, there are 3 or 4 of them on the envoy and you need to know which one is failing anyway, and only a diagnostic can tell you that.

2004 GMC Envoy has trouble idling

Try the fuel filter. Sounds like the engine might be running rough due to weak fuel pressure. Its cheaper to replace, especially if it's still original from 04. Try running some injector cleaner through a couple of tanks of high octane gas.
