Here is the most common cause of surges and stalls and low idle rough idle, it is the idle speed control air-bypass valve and throttle valve (IAC for short), they get full of gunk over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls, low idle) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

SOURCE: transmission fluid on 06 equinox
Regardless of what dealer tells you, there is no such thing as lifetime fluid. Even the best fluids such as synthetics should be changed. Change intervals should be regarded as false as well...If you changed all the fluids once a week your vehicle would last far longer than it does...Obviously this would take up a lot of time and $, but reasonably engine oil should be changed at at least 4,000miles, trans fluid every 25-30K. Otherwise the oil begins to chemically change loosing it's ability to do it's job and also carries fine contaminants with it that begin to wear components.
