Nope. This is a HUGE problem with a very involved repair!
When the alternator is replaced, the battery has to be disconnected. Doing that, or allowing it to run dead, causes the Engine Computer to lose its memory. Most of the data it had stored will be relearned as you drive, but one thing, "minimum throttle" has a procedure that must be followed. Until that is relearned, the engine may not start unless you hold the accelerator pedal down 1/4", you won't get the nice "idle flare-up" to 1500 rpm when you start the engine, and it will tend to stall at stop signs.
Now for the fix. To meet the conditions the computer needs to see for the relearn to take place, drive at highway speed with the engine warmed up, then coast for at least seven seconds without touching the pedals.
