English term or phrase: hunt and surge
Hola colegas, tengo la sigiuente oración, y no comprendo como es la reacción del motor:

"the engine continues to hunt and surge when left at the top no load RPM."

Agradecería me dieran una mano. Saludos y muchas gracias!!!

Explanation:
Referencias:

• What causes a diesel engine to hunt?
   "Hunting" is the term generally applied to an engine that will not maintain a constant speed with a fixed throttle setting. [...] Hunting is caused when the linkages become worn and sloppy, causing a variable relationship between engine speed and fuel feed rate. – http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What_causes_a_diesel_engine_to_hun...

• hunting = irregularidad de funcionamiento a pocas revoluciones (motores) – http://books.google.com.ar/books?id=ymGOeyga09AC&pg=PA249&dq...

• surge = funcionar con velocidad irregular – http://books.google.com.ar/books?id=ZIU4-UjfzYcC&pg=PA1388&d...

Otra cosa: para algunos, "surge" es un aumento; para otros, es lo mismo que hunting ( http://www.ronstultz.com/knowledge/Documents/4 Cycle Engine ... ).
