The high idle could be a result of many things. Might need a new idle control valve (or clean it out), possible vacuum leak somewhere. But the bucking is caused from either fuel delivery or ignition problem. I agree with MERCEDESTECH you should check out the ignition system top to bottom.

I think these cars can sense an over speed condition and then cut off the fuel. I believe that is done in the fuel pump relay. There might be some component that thinks it should shut off the fuel supply. I know that the fuel pump relay does have an input signal from the ignition unit which could be used for this purpose.
