Depends what is wrong. A surge can be due to a vacuum leak that allow more air and the computer compensates by adding more fuel. An intake manifold, vacuum line can be the source. I have located these by listening for a wind rushing noise or whistling noise, or by spraying carb cleaner around suspected areas and noticing an idle change.
Most common cause of surging is a dirty/clogged air filter.
A 1994 Cadillac Deville that has an engine surging problem and is stalling out can indicate it is not getting enough fuel. The fuel filter may be clogged.
you press lightly on the brake pedle
Surging is often fixed by replacing the fuel filter. A simple job and most small engine shops will have the part.
first you will need to determine if it is surging due to a fuel issue or governor issue. to do this hold the throttle linkage at the carb from moving. slightly higher than at idle. if it stops surging then it is the governor that needs to be reset. if it continues to surge then you have a fuel issue
It could be as simple as a vacuum leak but without knowing what year, make, model and engine it is hard to tell you what it may be.
Engine surging is usually due to insufficient fuel supply. Probable causes could be an air leak in the fuel system, or possibly a dirty fuel filter, causing fuel restriction.

There are several signs and symptoms of a bad MAP sensor. Some of them are increased emissions, poor engine performance, and engine surging.
The most common cause of engine surging (rev up and down) is a dirty air filter.
Have you tried replacing the hose for the automatic choke if it has one as mite not be getting enough air in and so is surging.
replace the egr valve the one you have is not good
Governor hunting or surging is a problem that causes the engine to constantly speed up rapidly and then slow down rapidly.
2001 Malibu 70 is known to develop surging problems between 40 and 60 mph if the car does not have the correct engine oil level. A confirmation that the engine surge is because of low transmission oil or poor transmission oil is a burnt oil smell when the car stops.
The most comon cause of an engine that keeps revving up and down (aka surging) is a dirty air filter.
If by "stop the engine", you mean turn the car off, then the answer is NO!
Most common culprit in surging is a dirty/clogged air filter.
No, there should not normally be any engine surging while driving following installation of a new fuel pump.
There are several ways to force an car engine to stop. One way to force the engine to stop is to disconnect the battery. Another way to force the engine to stop is to turn off the ignition.
There are several signs of a faulty Manifold Absolute Pressure sensor. Poor engine performance, a burning check engine light, a surging engine, increased emissions, and fouled spark plugs are all indicators to look for.

Your 1994 Honda Civic will overheat when the thermostat is malfunctioning. The overheated engine can experience the idle to surge. The engine should be turned off immediately.
Surging is the condition where the engine power fluctuates up and down with a continuous, soft jerking motion. When driving at a steady speed, the engine seems to speed up and slow down, without moving the accelerator.
The most common cause for surging is a vacuum leak
