Post Engine Rev's problem

Hi, I am new so please bear with me. I have a SL280 (1994) i have started to get a problem with the engine rev's. When i stop (traffic lights / roundabouts etc..) and the car is in drive the rev's surge between 0.5 and 1.5, i can put the car in neutral and this generally sorts the probelm out and the car idles around 0.7. Does anybody out their have an idea as to what the probelm could be?

I have looked around the internet and the 'Idle control valve' keeps coming up as a potential problem.

Any advise will be appreciated. Thanks
