when in cruise mode the road may appear to be flat, but there will be slight up and down variations. cruise control maintains a constant speed, so for example on a slight uphill section a bit more engine power will be needed, so r.p.m. will increase, and on a slight downhill section decrease.

If your not noticing any type of hesitation in the car itself or stutter with the car when it happens, could be a IPC issue. Wouldn't be a sensor issue cause than you would be feeling the car as well since the PCM goes by the RPM to run the engine & if it loses CKP signal, the car would die. So my guess would be more of a wiring issue, connector issue at the IPC or the IPC itself
