Unhappy W107 fuel problems

I have an 84 380SL.cold start and running goes smooth. If I shut off the car and restart after a period of time the car will repeatedly cough, stumble, and
Stall. And never fully recovers until engine has fully cooled. The fast idle runs at 1400 RPM but the warm idle climbs consistently to 1900 RPM. I'm thinking 8 have a sticky air flow valve but am not sure. I am planning on removing and cleanIng it tomorrow. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
I am brand new to this forum and have spend a little time reading some of the postings. It really cool to hear from so many other enthusiasts.

Proceed over to the R107 forum and yes, your idle control valve sounds suspect.
