When battery is disconnected sometime the system needs to reset itself like the idle speed control goes out of wack. What I recommend is to make sure you didn't know any vacuum hose or any air intake hoses were not broken in the process of replacing alternator. Double check everything and make sure its all in-tact. If all is good then start vehicle and step on accelerator holding RPM at 2500 for 3 minutes, then let go this should reset the idle speed motor. Contact if you need more help. Good Luck

That's a very high rpm for an idle! It should be between 700 to 9oo rpm. This truck needs a tune up, at least!

My 1996 GMC jimmy wants to stall when I come to a stop. The RPM gage goes up & down then drops below 1000 RPMS and stalls.

I would go down to your local auto parts store and do an alternator and battery test. It sounds like at low rpms you are loosing volts. When you apply the brakes you would be supprised how much power from the engine it takes. You could also be loosing oil pressure. Check your oil level. When your engine drops low rpm, the oil pressure drops and shuts down the engine.

I parked the mitsibushi montero sport that I was

make sure the brake lever is all the way reased if it is it could be the switch moved out of adjustment or a wire has came loose from the switch or the switch has gone bad, and still yet there may be a problem with the brake system unrelated to the hand brake.
hope this helped

I have a 1997 jeep Cherokee Sport with a 4.0L inline 6 and it will not start unless i put the peddle to the flour. win it dose start the RPM will stay up and slowly drop to around 1000 RPM. it usually is...

What your are describing for symptons actually sounds like a sensor and a valve the starting problem is aa sensor Throttle position sensor and the stalling problem is your idle air control valve hope this info helps just make sure after you replace these 2 items that you disconnect the battery for about 10 minutes so the computer resets itself.

at the engine, there is a small sensor that helps increase or decrease the rpm of the engine. Perhaps yours is soo low, that when you slow down, it's almost about to stop.

The other problem could be the airfilter sensor. If it's not properly fixed or if the sensor itself is a bit damaged, than the engine is not getting enough air and so, let's the engine almost go off.

Please give further details if this has not helped.

thank you
