Why do you think the injectors are clogged?
Have you checked the OBDII for error codes.

Clogged fuel injector(s) can cause cylinder misfires, resulting in surging and/or bucking.
Misfires will set OBDII error codes. You may get one general misfire code, or a code for individual cylinders.

Some transmission problems will also set error codes, depending on how many items the system monitors. Check the easiest things first -- make sure there are no injector/misfire problems.

I added Lucas cleaner to the fuel tank yesterday, with a full tank. I'll see what happens today on my trip to the VA, about 20 miles there and back. I thank you for the prompt response. I'll let you know. It's pretty obvious that at the age of 82 I still don't know my ass from a hot rock.....LOL. But what I HAVE learned is to listen to others.....and that's where you come in. Thanx again!
