Clio running strange

My 2002 1.2 16v clio dynamique has a bit of a problem, at idle it runs ok but every so often it does a bit of a blow or puff out the exhaust a really really small backfire, but it also occasionally cuts out at junctions. I was thinking something to do with the coils or spark plugs, but after plugging in the clip i got this up on the screen:

Im not 100% sure on what this means is this a problem on the intake manifold or exhaust, what would be at fault a gasket or the lambada sensor?

Re: Clio running strange

I had a similar problem some months ago, IIRC i had the same fault code DF045.

It turned out to be a faulty map sensor .
These cannot be tested without a special vacuum gauge so you need a working replacement.
Those lights/symbols look orange in colour to me which are faults that have been fixed but still stored in the ecu .
Try clearing/erasing them and see what new faults show up.
Current faults are usually red.
