    You may have an engine misfire causing your surge. Is your service engine soon light on? If so there should be a fault code stored which can be read with a scan tool. Any stored codes may help lead to the cause of the problem you are having.

    I failed to mention that the light is not on. I am eager to fix it and any suggestions are very welcome. Thanks for any help.
    It seems to happen while driving at a steady speed and more when the car is warmed up. It does not seem to affect it when accellerating up a hill (downshifts to maintain the speed) I had the injectors cleaned, but it made no difference.

    I don't notice it while idling. I hope this additional information helps.
