High-freq oscillations in residuals

I am wondering if someone could help me. I am running a transient simulation and encountering oscillations, particularly in the continuity and energy residuals within a single timestep, when other timesteps are fine. After a few timesteps, these oscillations disappear and return to relative normalcy.
Advanced solution control options are initially left to their defaults (F-Cycle), but I've also variously tried V-Cycle multigrid with and without BCGSTAB stabilization on Flow and Energy.
I've also gone into the text-interface options /solve/set/amg-options/amg-gpgpu-options and played with using different solvers (FGMRES PBICGSTAB AMG), pre-/post-sweeps and smoothers (ILU GS JACOBI).
Thanks in advance!
The second to last timestep showed the beginning of the oscillations with no changes from the start of the simulation and was interrupted. There is nothing physically going on that should cause the oscillations. The Energy under-relaxation factor was reduced from 1 to 0.75 and Density from 1 to 0.9 in the last shown timestep.
