Do get the cambelt done as if it breaks it will take out the engine. Don't bother going to a dealer unless you can get by on one arm and leg, the Clio 1 is not that complex, as for the cutting out I would suspect the TDC sensor. A lot of the service items can be done at home by anyone with an average mechanical competence, such as oil change, oil and air filter change and the TDC sensor is a doddle if a little fiddley to get to.
Click the link in my sig for the Clio FAQ, there is a good post on the TDC and if you have further questions post back either in this thread or start a specific one in say the engines forum for advice on the oil change.
