RPM Gauge

Recenlty purchased 2007 Ford Taurus, 31,000 miles. I have noticed that while sitting at light in traffic, the rpm gauge jumps between 600-800 rpm. I have no heating/air controls on, wipers are off, the only thing
running is the vehicle. I am aware that different compressors and pumps do run while the vehicle is running. I can feel the vehicle get bogged down when the guage reaches the lower RPM. Is this normal? I took it to the dealer and they said that it was because I had my heater on. I didn't have time to argue so I dismissed it, thinking they had looked at it. It was a cold morning ,and the switch hadn't moved. I was told that it could be bad gas, used injector cleaner, higher grade for a month...nothing. Any ideas would be great, preferably within 5,000 mile warranty...
Thanks in advance,
JM

Either take it back to the original dealer and tell them what the problem is again, and that your didn't have your heater on. Or go to a different heater.

Try putting the A/C on, what happens? Does it work without short cycling?
