First thing I would do is fully charge battery rather than relying on alternator to replenish charge .

possibly an EGR (exhaust gas recirculation) valve issue. could possibly need a good clean or replacing. may be a vacuum hose split on the EGR or the vacuum control valve which is also a common failure.
