Engine surging at idle????

OK, this is a question for a buddy of mine. He says if he leaves it idle for a little while it will start reving up or surging however you want to call it. His truck is an 08 all stock except for lift and tires.

Is it only when it's cold outside. Truck has a high idle to warm the engine.

read the owner's manual, it states the engine will do this & all is normal.

I actually had mine do the same thing last night. It was almost like it had a lope idle or something; it would rev up to about 550RPm then back to 500RPM and just keep doing it. I turned it off then turned it back on and it wen away.

This is becoming really common it seems. I have seen numerous threads, and I too have been having lope idle and smoke problems. More so since I updated to the strategy flash system.

Rolling idle is set by something changing the torque request.

See it a lot more with tuned trucks than stock ones. Try turning the A/C or defrost off. It may be the clutch kicking on and off if the idle isn't changing a lot that may e what is going on.
