Chevy pick up stalls after jump-start

I have a 2003 Chevy Silverado with a 4.8 v8 gas engine. After sitting for awhile I had to jump start it and now when I slow down for a traffic light or while turning it stalls. I thought I remember this happening before and I had to drive it for awhile until it "reprogrammed itself". I also thought there was something you could do with the ignition and pedals to reset the truck. Anybody been down this road? Thanks for any help you can give

It may need to reset itself but I have a hard time believing it would drive this poorly while it did so; it should be doing something more akin to a fine tuning whereas your symptoms are more like it's relearning how to run.

Could be bad battery or alternator is failing. Try turning on all the accessories and lights and see if it makes a difference.
