May try to clean the IAC valve located on the throttle body. Unplug the sensor connector. Remove the 2 screws attaching it, careful not to damage the gasket if possible. Clean well with brake cleaner or electronic cleaner and be sure to keep the solenoid part dry and free from any chemical.

Welcome to the forums.

Yup, I'd check into the IAC first. If they get cruddy, they will get sticky and not work smoothly. Thus your idle will surge.
