Surge, great post, what engine displacement.
open hood (my answers are USA only) look up, see big white
sticker that is the engine vacuum and type engine sticker)
surge hot or cold? engine.
if it surges hot, that means :
1: ISC system out of control , it job is to stop surge and 5 more things.
2: the engine is way lean and cause ISC to loose control

just 2 reasons, and can be 50 things. wrong.
is the CEL lamp out running> if not, pull the DTC codes and post them. (all)
as a mech ,we find out which it is.
(i make sure my engine can hold closed loop at idle , if not and lean it will surge. (may)
we make sure the ISC works ok (not sticking, clean it)
and then test to see , that if by my forcing it closed, by hand (ask)
i can get way below 800 RPM. most do 500 but 600 is ok.
if rpm stays above 800 closed, that means you have huge
vacuum leak or TV blackage (too thight throttle cable?)

finding vacuum leaks can be horrific, task .
there are many tricks (and tests) to do this, ask.

see that logic above, If I the mech, can not drop rpm below 800
by hand, then no ISC on earth can. not now or ever.
and proves the induction has huge air leaks
or some dolt set the spark timing 20 degrees advanced.
see it.
so as always , a tuneup is first, then as always , i always check timing,and for proper advance rates.
advances engines at idle race way too fast and the iSC will just go NUTS.

ISC = Idle speed controller , that valve that has wires.
the IAC is a thermal device and no wires and it too can stick open
when the IAC sticks open the ISC goes , yes, nuts,
nuts can be surge (ECU is hunting it)
or just racing way too fast hot, say 1500 rpm.
a slow RPm can be a stuck open EGR (50k service point)
lean will cause too low.
too rich , misfires and too low
the ISC is the last thing to work right, all else must be good.

what does your CEL lamp do?

PS: most cars, if the ECU/PCM enters Limphome, it cuts all idle controls. again, the CEL lamp. glowing while running.../????

Have you checked for vacuum leaks ?

Idol to high


Try cleaning the throttle body, especially around the butterfly pivot pin, and the area where the butterfly sits in closed position. Over time, these areas are bad about carbon build-up. Once carbon gets built up, the butter fly can't completely close, which causes the throttle to still be open a little. This can cause higher idol (rpms). Very simple process. Buy throttle body cleaner for $6, remove your air intake hose from the intake. open your throttle and you're see the butterfly open and close. Spray the inside of intake, butterfly. You're see a lot of black carbon run out. wipe clean with a clean cloth. Repeat 2 more times until you don't see carbon running out. Put your intake hose back on, and you may have to turn the engine over a few times to dry the cleaner out. It's gonna sound like it don't want to start, but once the cleaner is dry, it will start and hopefully, this will solve your problem. Also, look at your throttle cable for any hoses, wire or anything to prevent the cable from closing the throttle.

Look for a vacuum leak first.Also look for bad or dirty connections at the throttle position sensor.O2 will usually set a code.Check the throttle body itself for gumming up and clean if needed.

Engine is racing


The vehicle should have a stored trouble code, go to an Auto Zone they will read the code for free. Usually idles surges are caused by a malfunctioning TPS sensor or throttle position sensor.
