We have a 1.4 RT Clio 98 S plate

we had the RAC out this morning due to non starting, turned out to be a dead battery. Nice RAC man replaced it and it started no problem.

Hubby came home this evening and went to take the car out for a run, started straight up but engine was juddering so bad and there was a spluttering/popping sound from exhaust.
Took it round the estate where we live and several times lost power totally, car crawling along at a snails pace, then it would pick up speed again only a couple 100 yards further to do the exact same thing again.

The problems on searching sound very much like the problems people were having with the contaminated fuel a few months back.

We had the TDC sensor replaced about a year ago when the car just wouldn't start at all.
