Ok you erased the codes for the check engine light by disconnecting the battery. If light comes back on go to auto zone and have the codes read. They will do this for free. Then post codes back on here so we can better help you. Sounds like possibly a vacuum leak, dirty/faulty idle air control valve or dirty throttle plate.
