mcauser34,

Since you just changed the battery, it may take a little bit of time and running to set the vehicle's engine processor adaptive strategy. Kind of an on-the-job programming, if you will, for the processor. Once everything sets up after some driving, hopefully all will again be ok.

If the problem continues, be looking for a vacuum leak, air intake leak, unmetered air leak, loose vacuum hose, etc...or stuck idle air control valve.

Good luck!
check the air filter assy. front to back.tighten all clamps and check all electrical connections.something may have been left loose during battery replacement.
