Sounds like a faulty throttle motorised throttle body ..
but could also be caused by one or more defective spark plugs, this is a very common problem and would be the first thing that a dealer would replace to cure this type of running problem..

If it turns out to be the body then it is bolted inside the inlet manifold and will take about 1 hour to remove..

Generally the body is not repairable, so a new one will be required..

This is also a very common problem with the D7F engine and there are a couple of Renault tech notes that cover it in detail..
