Your FPR fuel pressure regulator is going bad, watch your fuel pressure when it is surging. I bet it is jumping 1,500 psi when it acts up. The fpr can be purchased from the vendors on here, I think they are around 200 bucks and you can do it yourself.

Ok I have heard that before but. Haven't really had the funds to get one... I looked for a used one I can hopefully get ones soon! Thanks for the info... how hrs is it going to be to do myself.... the reason I ask is I'm living in an apartment now and will have to do it in the parking lot! Lol

Find a garage to do it in. It is pretty labor intensive, it takes about 4 hrs if you know what your doing. The first time takes a little longer, and you will need some swivel headed ratchets.

Just did mine couple weeks ago.....not to bad to do just take your time and DONT drop anything into the valley for you will spend hours looking for it! Have lots of different extentions handy foe each of the three tourqe bit screws requires something different for removing them. You may want to think about replacing all your rubber fuel lines while your ther too.

I would look for a write up on it and purchase the tools to do it myself. You will save a couple hundred bucks on labor and get more tools to boot.

It won't hurt it to drive with it surging, but at some point the surge will get so bad it will want to jump forward when it gear.
