mine did the same, I even changed the controler under the dash, it would never keep a constant speed, I was told that diesels seem to have this problem because of the lag and slow throttle response. I gave up trying to use it. even the 86 300e I just got does the same, but it will work on flat ground but either surges or cuts out on up or downhills

Check the cruse control switch on the steering column. They get noisey and dont make good contact after a while.
