It sounds like the engine idle is to low. This can happen after you replace the battery because the computer has lost its "learned" memory for the computer controlled idle speed. RepairPal has an article about this - here is the link - http://repairpal.com/engine-stalling-after-battery-replacement
thank you so much the link you referred me to was great I enjoy being a lady and tinkering with cars but Ill always need some help i see. The process worked wonderfully!
