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.
