Here is the most common cause of surges and stalls, it is the idle speed control air-bypass valve and throttle valve, they get full of gunk over the miles and cause idle issues (stalls) like yours, Get a can of intake cleaner from any local parts store, not carb spray, intake cleaner, it is made by a company called CRC, remove the air intake hose to the engine, hold the idle high so the engine won't stall, then spray the can of cleaner into the intake while keeping the engine running, use at least 1/2 the can, shut down the engine and disconnect the battery for 5 minutes, then restart and complete a number of mixed driving cycles, town, freeway, stop and go etc., after a few days the problem will go away as the system will relearn to the clean intake.

SOURCE: Car surges and is sluggish with AC on.

First of all, your speedo is probably a result of something they forgot to do, at transmission, such as hook up sensor or cable. Are you sure you didn't notice same feeling before that repair?
When was last tune-up? What engine?

SOURCE: 1989 honda prelude. engine surges. from normal to 2100 rpms

There is a warm up valve on the throttle body(should have 2 small coolant hoses). remove the valve and have someone start the car while you block the port to the valve on the intake. If that clears up the problem you can cut a piece of cardboard to mount in between the valve and intake.should straighten it out.

You have two problems. The surging is from a dirty throttle body and /or air filter. The selector light could be from a bad selector switch or internal transmission problems. Have the car scanned for codes.

V6 engine surges after storage. It surges in PARK and in NEUTRAL. Seems that TCS is engaged in drive.


Its not your transmission because its not engaged in the gears you stated . The oil pump inside the converter is on but that would not cause this. The TCS better work in drive otherwise you'd have bigger problems. There are several different sensors that can cause this. Its best to bring the vehicle to a repair shop and have them scan the ECU for codes and if that doesn't work, scope out the vehicle to determine which system is malfunctioning.
