Smile Erattic Rev counter engine cutting out

Megane update
Just to let you all know, have now sorted the problem. Ghess what it was a bad earth! 2 earth wires come out of the main loom and are bonded to the engine block (near the dipstick) cannot believe I did not spot this earlier as I have had a simalar problem with the speedo & power steering about 2 years ago, that was the 1st earth I repaired. This time it was the other earth. reconnected to main chassis with the aid of a crimp & bit of 4mm wire and hey presto car is now like a Rolls Royce. Thanks to everyone for your input.
