CVT Problems? Car is surging and rpms are going up/down

I recently had the local Honda dealership replace my EGR valve under warranty from the chevy dealer I bought my car from. The warranty has since expired. The Honda dealership also changed my Trans fluid since it was apparently the wrong stuff.

Since I got the car back, my car surges in the mornings, and also 'slips' a bit from a standstill. I can hear a belt somewhere slipping when I first start moving from a stop.

The surging I'm talking about is different from before the replaced EGR. Basically, the car will hang at 3,000rpm on the freeway, then jump from 3k to 3.5k back and forth for a while, about every 2 seconds. Very irritating. This also happens sometimes when I'm coasting. About a 500rpm range back and forth.

Any ideas?
