CAR SHUTTING OFF WHEN STOP OR SLOW DOWN

2003 Toyota Camry

Engine Performance problem
2003 Toyota Camry 4 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 107000 miles

The last 2 times I bought a NEW battery for my car it subsequently starts shutting down when I stop or slow down, after its installed. The dealer technician told me that when I disconnected the battery the loses it memory of the car idle processes.

He told me it will self-correct itself after 3-4 days or I can bring it in and he can fix for $225.00. He only recommended using " premium gasoline" in the meanwhile. This seems like a RECALL issue, my car should not being loses its idle every time I install a NEW battery.

Do you have any recommendations?
