put a new battery in it and it
ran fine.  Now when it idles
down at a stop sign it dies.

My truck is doing the same thing but I was told it has to do with the transmission electrical.Something with the torque convertor .It shifts funny when I am getting on it and sometimes when I come to a stop it will stall.I am taking it in to a tranny shop soon to have them scan the computer in the trans.
