The******** and misfiring could be due to a fault with the ignition coils, get them checked.
Ignition Coil Resistance
Using a DVOM, measure primary coil resistance between positive and negative terminals of coil. See Fig. 4. Measure secondary coil resistance between coil positive terminal and ignition coil tower. Primary and secondary coil resistance should be within specification. See IGNITION COIL RESISTANCE table.
The surging is a fault with the idling system and can be due to vacuum leakages, high idling speed, lack of coolant in system, clogged coolant hoses to the ISC or a faulty ISC, (located under the throttle body).
Get the throttle body and ISC cleaned, readjust the idling speed and retest.
Did you try to retrieve for trouble codes?
IDLE SPEED CONTROL (ISC) MOTOR RESISTANCE TEST
Disconnect ISC motor connector. Connect ohmmeter between terminals No. 1 and 2 of ISC motor connector. If resistance is not 5-35 ohms at 68 F (20 C), replace ISC motor assembly.
1. Using a stethoscope, check operating sound of injector(s) during engine cranking or idling. If clicking sound is heard, injectors are okay. If clicking sound is not heard at each injector, go to step 2).
2. Disconnect injector electrical connector. Measure resistance between injector connector terminals. At 68 F (20 C), if resistance is not 13-16 ohms, replace injector.
3. If resistance is within specification, check injector wiring circuit for open or short to ground. If wiring circuit tests okay, replace injector.
