Idle air control or maybe it''s just the a/c compressor cycling on and off.

It does it when the air is off as well.....and only when stopped at a light or stop sign.

O.K., tell me in more detail about the surge. RPM fluctuation, stutter when leaving a stop. What does it do on the first start of the day(cold engine)? Let me know.
