Hi, I had a very similar problem with my clio, took it to a garage and the plugged it onto the computer and apparantly it needed a new flywheel sensor. Got a new one and it worked fine for a couple of months then it started playing up again. It didn't start one day when I was in the carpark in Tesco! I called the RAC out and the bloke fiddled with the white and green wire that is connected to the sensor and it has started every time since! Apparantly it's quite a common fault on renaults and renault make an adaptor plug to fit on the end of the wire that goes into the sensor. It costs about 15. If the wire is not connected properly or is in the wrong place or bent out of shape the car wont start. Hope this helps!
