You probably have, but I have to ask being it wasn't on your list, changed fuel filter? Next thing, would be to check fuel pressure and make sure you have good vacuum to the pressure regulator. Please advise.

Please bear with me, I'm trying to narrow this down. When the engine rpms variys up and down, does the van speed vary accordingly? Does this "surging" happen in all gears or just high? Please advise. In the interum, I need to do a little research.

If you mean in park and floor it whens it warm, it does not struggle whats so ever, everything is in accordance what it's suppose to do. Latest what I have done is cleared the computer with a scanner, not by unhookig the battery and knock on wood it's been running fine go figure.

What I was looking for was a possible plugged converter. But, if you didn't have any rpm struggle, it must be ok. Let me know what transpires.
