A check eng lite will very seldom cause any drive-ability concern, you most likely have an intermittent fault like a O2 sensor, have Kragen run a self test for a trouble code, it's fun and it's free!

2006 engine light it on And run but it turns off

If the check engine light turns off after awhile, the problem is not severe. It could be a loose gas cap. When the light comes on again, go to an auto aprts sotre and ask them to scan your engine's computer for the code indicating hwat the computer thinks is wrong.

O2 sensor. Doesn't come on all the time. Gives false signal at times. They carbon up and need to be sandblasted or replaced.

The battery light was on i drove it for awhile then it just stalled and wouldn't start until it cooled down then it started again then it wouldn't start ot turn over. we changed the battery and the starter...

check your regulator
if u have a multimeter, run it across ur battery when the cars running, it should be around 13-14v's. if its lower it should be that ur alternators not chargeing, if its really high it might be ur regulator

Car lights, dash lights, tac, radio and clock all go out but

Look for missing or loose grounds. LOAD test the battery, holding a charge and ability to perform are two different things.

Car dies when driving,check engine light comes on.

There is a good chance it could be your fuel pump , however if the check engine light is coming on and the dealer cant tell you what is wrong , try a different dealer or another shop. Second opinions never hurt.
