Unhappy New Member who wants to burst out crying!

Hi everyone, I own a 2002 ML270cdi and I would really appreciate some sound advice as I am seriously worried.....which is not good before Christmas!

The symptoms are that the car starts normally and ticks over normally at 800 rpm with no warning lights. However when you put it into Drive or Reverse the RPM drops to 500 (which is lower than usual and you feel the car straining to move away). When you hold it from moving with the brake stationary then the engine shudders because the rpm is low. Pop it back in to Park or Neutral and it revs briefly to 1000 rpm and then back to normal at 800 rpm. In brief it is like the car is fighting to move in gear and when it is out of gear it revs with relief befor egoing back to normal?

What is it? Is is mega bucks? Is my Christmas going to be ruined? Please help!
