    My 99 TJ 6cyl automatic surges when it sits at a idle in drive. Put it in park or neutral and its fine. I have replaced the TPS , and the IAC. I have had the computer bench checked by SLI in Illinois and it has come back fine.
    I'm thinking it might be the transmission or some other sensor.
    I have not had the OBD tester on it lately but when i did it came up with po 351 and po 132. The O2 sensor has been changed as well.
    When it does act up at a light or a stop after i restart it and take off the tranny is in nutural for a instant. Its like it does not know what gear it should be in or no gear at all.
    I have had it to many garages and nobody seems to have a clue. The transmission works fine any other time.

    Maybe fuel pump acting up and getting more juice than needed????? Not strong on this but I have had my rpm higher at times when idle but then goes back to normal. Think something sticking. Good luck

    Would have put money on the cam sensor. But those usually throw a 340 or 344 code. You may try the crankshaft position sensor. Located in a tight spot on tranny near bell housing.
