      iv'e had this problem a while now. iv'e been searching but can seem to put my finger on it. when i accelerate from a stop in the 95 gl the engine will occasionally surge and pulse rapidly. id say it only happens 1 out of 20 times. when i catch it doing it i noticed the car still responds to the pedal when i led off and give gas will continue surging in time with rpms. 98% of the time when i shift to 2nd the pulsing stops and it continues smoothly.

      Does this problem go away if you mash the gas to the floor in 1st?

      Does this engine have an EGR valve?
