Default '01 Civic LX dies out while slowing to a stop

I just had a 30,000 check up after my "check engine" light appeared. All
was well for a week until my battery just up and died on me. I had it
changed and now my car keeps dying out on me whenever I slow down at a
stop sign or when I'm turning a corner. The car just dies without any
warning and I'm forced to stop and restart the car in the middle of heavy
traffic (it does start up right away though so I'm thinking it's not a
battery issue anymore). Any ideas as to why this might be happening?
Alternator stuff?

Tell us the CODE that's written on your work order. It turned the light
on for a reason. You may just need to do the 'idle learn' procedure,
which is in these PDI sheets

Are you sure it was a check engine, and not just a MAINTENANCE REQUIRED?
Huge difference.

Well, I got the 30,000 mile check up because the "check engine" light came
on. I assumed (I know, I know) that the mechanic would have check to see
if there was something more serious to worry about... do I need to go back
and ask for a maintenance check?

the "check engine" light comes on normally at normal maintenance
intervals.After reset,you get 5000 miles or whatever the interval is for
your model,and then it first begins blinking (for a few seconds at
startup),then stays on as it gets closer to or past the end of the
interval,unless reset.

It could be lots of stuff;you need to have the ECU read for trouble codes,I
understand Autozone does this for free.
did you get a list of all that was done at the 30K checkup,any stuff
replaced? Like fuel filter,plugs,maybe the fuel pump has developed a
problem.
Maybe you got some bad gas.Or have water in the gas.

Please don't equate the 'check engine'(MIL) indicator with the 'Maint
Required' indicator. The O.P. is confused enough. O.P. should move the
owners manual to the bathroom and figure out the difference.

Naughty boy. You said "****".

You and others are right though. The alphanumeric code would help immensely
in aiding Chilidawg. I hope he calls his dealer and gets it.

Curly Q. Links needs to realize that the reason one comes on this site is
to get help. Smart ass comments are not helpful. Shame on you for making
the search for a sincere answer to my problem an unworthy experience.
