Default 06 TSX Surging

My '06 TSX with just over 88K miles has started surging in the past week or
so. It is most noticeable when accelerating, but also happens when
maintaining a constant speed. The engine RPM will vary +/- 100 RPM. The
check engine light is not illuminated. I am, and have always used 92/93
octane gas. I have gone through about 1.5 tanks of gas in the past 10 days
or so. Fuel economy has dropped at least 2 MPG in combined driving.

The only other thing unusual is that I've had to re-pair my cell phone with
the vehicle twice in the past 2 weeks. I'd click on the hands-free talk
button, tell it who to call, and it would respond with "No Phone Found".

Thanks for any advice,

Bob

Took it to my local mechanic. They spent an hour trying to find something.
They were able to get a single mis-fire on cylinder #2 when a dump truck
pulled out in front of them and they quickly lifted off the gas. They
verified that the fly-by-wire throttle position sensor and throttle body
valve were in sync. Throttle body was very dirty, so they cleaned it. It
seems better. Their suggestion is to drive it until it becomes consistent
enough that the computer logs a code. I'm due for the 100k mile maintenance
in about 12k miles, so I'll make sure the plugs get changed then.
