Had similar problem in 99 3/4 ton diesel. Ended up being the start of the end for the transmisson. See if your trans fluid smells burnt.

What would cause a chevrolet traverse to surge going into 2nd from stop?

I assume you mean you have an automatic transmission, and the surge occurs when it shifts from first to second. If that is the case, the most probably cause is a slipping clutch or low oil pressure (a weak pump) in the transmission.

My 2006 ve commodore is surging when you try to maintain say 80kmh it will feel like its stop starting surge when you press the exelorator it will stop and there is no miss in the motor

Have the codes read. Even if the light is not on. No pending or history codes. Then throw it on a scanner. Look at the IAC, ECT, TPS, MAF sensors. Also look at the transmission.

What causes Transmission to surge when I stop fast?.

Transmissions don't surge. Engines do. Check the air filter, clean the throttle, IAC, and MAF sensor. Check vacuum lines also.

What can make the car surge for over 2 years and the OBD2 machine does not pick it up?

It is not always a case of plugging in the code reader and the codes come up. There are different cables to use for different data plugs and certain procedures to get the codes to read . There will be a fault code recorded and you may have to take it to a dealer service centre to have their machine read the code.

Have a 94 astro 4.3 new gaskets block up. surges at idle no engine light. runs fine at all other speeds

Honda's among other vehicles are prone to having this surging problem. I learned a little trick that takes about 5 minutes to do and it has never failed to solve the problem. Take a 1/8 inch drill bit and just below the center of the butterfly on your throttle body, drill one small hole. The vehicle idle surges because the throttle body assembly is not getting enough air through it at idle. This will stop the surging. You only need the 1 hole drilled. Don't forget to stuff a rag or paper towel in behind the butterfly before you drill the hole. It will prevent metal shavings from entering your motor. (do this with the motor not running)

Engine/transmission surges

It might be just the fan kicking in or the AC compressor just keeping charge

Surging and not shifting

change the transmission filter sounds like its clogged up. replace w/ name brand high milage transmission fluid. should fix you right up. if you take it to a shop you can ask to have the bands adjusted also, that should give you another 5- 10,000 miles on trans. maybe more. good luck
