The engine cutting out when driving could be a TDC sensor fault,or if the engine is erratic when accelerating it could be the vaccuum pipe between the MAP sensor (on the bulkhead) and inlet manifold is split.This would cause the car to hesitate badly intermittantly,and thinking about it,it could also cause the engine to 'hunt' on idle.

If the rev counter is erratic but with no change in engine speed,then there could be a fault with the gauge it's self.
Thanks for input i will check out the MAP pipe before paying out for TDC sensor.
Apparantly renualt have decided to change the connection plug on the new TDC sensor and charge 15 + VAT for the coversion loom (2 wires & a plug) + a further 25 + VAT for the sensor itself. wondering if you know a cheaper option.
