Car died then started to chug. who not speed up like it wasnt getting enough gas. had the car floored and would chug along. service engine soon light was blinking til i got home. now it will not start

So many things that could cause this problem,have the fuel pressure checked,and then maybe a stopped up cat(converter).If it has jumped time it will have this symptom also.

I did a tune up on my 94 Chevy suburban 1500 4x4 and it runs so bad and and dies now and when I put any kind of pressure on the gas it chugs and sometimes dies, and I'm sucking down fuel. It ran good...

With the information given it is kind of hard to make a correct diagnosis, but I believe I would look at the correct firing order. If it ran ok before the tune-up and runs worst now it sounds as if you might have gotten a few of the wires in the wrong place.
You will want to start out by removing your number one spark plug and either hook up a remote start switch or have someone help you turn the engine over while you put a finger over the spark plug hole in the head. Just bump the key over little by little until you feel air being pushed out of the plug hole and stop when the engine's timing mark lines up with top dead center. If you pop your distributor cap the rotor will be pointing at your number one plug position of the cap. Start there with the number one plug wire and work your way around clock wise in the firing order of 1,8,4,3,6,5,7,2 If having the wires in the wrong order is your problem, this should get you sorted out.

2003 Pontiac Sunfire-spark plugs?

Your battery has nothing to do with this. It sounds like you haven't had anything done in over a year. You most likely need a tune-up, which is normal wear and tear, my guess is the spark plugs and fuel filter need to be changed.
