Ahmed Body on 25degree

I am an undergraduate who is doing a ahmed body with 25degree. This is the first time that I use a CFD software.
I have a question about the residual plot when you start running the report.
The Tdr line starts going up and down when iteration start from about 150+. May I ask is there any problem to do with the model or mesh?
Here is my setting:
inlet velocity: 40m/s
turbulence intensity: 0.5%
surface mesh: polyhedral mesher, prism layer mesher and surface remesher
physics: constant density, gas, k-epsilon turbulence, realizable k-epsilon two layer, reyonlds-average navier stokes, segregated flow, steady, three dimensional, turbulent and two layer all y+ treatment.
where the base size of the mesh is 100mm and mesh in the body is min: 1mm and target: 5mm. The floor and the wall is in slip condition. There are 4 prism layers around the body which is 1mm thick, growth rate: 1.2
Please help me out. Thanks

I expect the flow to seperate from the body, producing some vortices behind the body. That may be a reason for the osscillation, as you are running this case in steady state.
What are the other residuals looking like? And the forces on the body?
