Now i don't know if this applies to your Megane but it might help my son had a 1998 Megane coupe 1.6 8 valve he had starting problems would take anything from 2 to 10 turns of the key to get it going then when it got going as soon as he came to traffic lights or a juction it stalled but would start straight away we simply could not work it out finally a mechanic friend of mine sussed it out it was the Idle control valve at the back of the engine simple enough to do just 2 screws and unplug wireing connector but renault do not sell these on their own it comes as a unit and wanted 160 quid so i looked on ebay plenty around but i got one from the local scrapyard for 5 there is a number on the wireing connector make sure you get this first to match the one you need hope this might be of help
