    Check for vacuum leaks if your idle is surging erratically.

    you say at 2K rpms itcuts on and off. Is it like the rev-limiter is kicking in? If so get it scanned by a shop that will be able to read 'live' data and see what the sensors are doing. A wild guess would be a dead spot in the TPS , but that's a wild guess.Put a vacuum guage on it and watch and record the readings and whether it's steady or smooth , and reply with that info if the scanner bit is unavailable.
