Check to make sure that there's power from the alternator to the battery on the charge-back wire. If nothing's there, then your alternator is junk and you'll have to replace it again.

sounds like a vacuume leak, take some soapy water in a spray bottle and spray the hoses slowly, when the motor levels out you found your leak, being 11 yrs old, i would change all the hoses anyway, they are overdue

This is usually caused by having a vacuum hose come off or
connected to the wrong place. The diagram is under the hood.
Also the cold air bypass could be dirty and need cleaning. I use
carb cleaner in a spray can.
Other check air filter, plugs, wires.
