Sounds like the IAC valve is carboned up. This valve can usually be removed easily with 1 connector and 2 bolts. It is how the engine controls the idle speed. Many times a can of carb cleaner and working the piston back and forth on it will free it up for many more miles.
Turn on the a/c at idle. does the idle speed change?

Dies when foot off gas


I would get another opinion on the alternator. There are tests that I am sure that autozone did not and cannot run. One is a load test, This would indicate if the battery is getting any electricity from the alternator under loadm diodes in the alternator could be failing. There is no way to adjust the RPM. IT should be around 800 on an automatic tranny in drive.

2003 Toyota camry stalled at red light once and is now running fine. Should I worry


Does not sound serious as long as the car otherwise seems to be doing what it should. Don't drive if the engine is running hot or it is leaking fluids. Start with fuel filter or faulty fuel pump. Could be other things but if the car has had regular servicing then should not be anything major eg broken breather hoses . I would get a mechanical inspection for piece of mind.

Jerks and shakes from time its cranked. can drive it but still jerks, doesnt want to take in gas when speeding up, some back firing when giving it gas. engine light flashes red until letting off the gas...


Sounds like a fuel injector is clogged up or is not firing due to the computer not firing it. Check by putting a noid light on each injector and checking for pulse by viewing a blinking light from it. Also, one can check to see if a stethoscope can be used to listen for a clicking from the injector indicating it's at least pulsing that way.
