You might try and find out when the last time the O2 sensor was changed.
I've been told every 60K.  I have 142K on mine and it surges.  You may
need a tune up, which is every 15K.  Don't get ripped off.  To do a tune
up, since it has electronic ignition, all you need to do is change the
cap, rotor, plugs, and I would upgrade to a K&N air filter.  Up to redline
should be fine on most cars, but past it.... I don't think so!
