Question: Stalles when idling

5.3 liter engine. Van stalls when starts unless pressing on gas to raise engine speed. Just replaced alternator. Drives fine but sometimes will drop off, voltometer will drop down to about 9 from 14 and will run kind of rough. Will start up without a problem but then die
