its not the alternator. if it was you couldnt start the car.... it sounds like it went into a newtural state, kinda like stalling even ifs an automatic. Mine has done that before but i was racing an kicked it into reverse real fast and then but into drive fast and it went into a newtural state..... the battery and oil light came on. that was about a week ago and everythings fine. i dont think you have anything to worry about but dont take my word 100%
