It is not a factory warranty! Thankfully!

Today I cleared the code and it hasn't come back yet but now I have a surging feeling when stopped with the foot on the brake or at low speeds in reverse?????

Usually you'll notice an issue...much like you are.

Easy way to find them is look at the small hoses etc for cracks or something unhooked. If you see nothing and want an easier way to narrow it down.. start the engine and spray around the various possible areas with throttle body cleaner..when the engine changes pitch and nearly dies .. you know where to look

I miss the old days where you would use a paper clip to pull codes *sigh*
