hey guys new here. just bought an 01 grand am gt for work on the road this summer to cruise around job to job in. having a couple small issue (i hope) and am hoping you can all help me out. the cruise when i set it will surge or flucuate. you can feel it speed up, then fall off, speed up, etc. im thinking it could be a sensor of some sort not reading right. does anyone have any info they can let me in on on this subject? otherwise its going into the stealership next week. thanks!

its a good possibility.. my car did the same thing with/without cruise on. but then i just got a new transmission.

car drives fine without using the cruise and doesnt do that then. only when i set the cruise you can feel it kinda jerk you around a little bit

i unplugged the maf cuz i read you can test it that way, it deff shifted different but cruise over 60 mph wasnt jerking and surging around anymore. anyone know the best place to buy a new maf sensor
