MPV dies when off the accelerator

Our MPV just got a new transmission and now it dies when the accelerator is not engaged. Hubby is trying to limp it home in traffic. Any thoughts?

Any trouble lights on? If it just underwent a major repair like a transmission swap, I’d think they forgot a connection somewhere. Have it towed back to the shop that did your transmission, at their cost.
