2001 Malibu transmission surges in drive between 2,000-2,150 with no pedal change.

2001 Malibu will surge while in drive, ranging between 2,000-2,150 without change in pressure to accelerator. Like as if it is slipping in and out of gear. Also when you depress accelerator to pass,it will drop down into 1st okay and then when it changes to second,it struggles to find that gear and seems as though it is trying to get second and/or 3rd and gets in a bind. I cringe and let off of the accelerator and then it is in second again. Please help? I am going real easy on the pedal as I need to get another 10 years out of this car.
