First thing to try is to do a cylinder balance test! Loosen the spark plug wires, and with engine idling, remove one spark plug wire at a time. Both cylinders should be equal. If engine dies when one is removed, the opposite cylinder is not firing. Causing the surging. If that is the case, check cylinder for spark.

Was engine firing on both cylinders? Please ACCEPT to close and get me credit. Thanks.
