Car stalls at low speed


The problem I have, is that each time I approach a junction and slow down the engine stalls, power steering goes etc...May be important to add that it happens when I am 'coasting' in that when I put foot on the clutch to change down gear it happens.

The strange bit...

Without even turning the key again, If I press the accelerator, after about 3 seconds or so the car will just bolt back in to life and keep going (untill the next time I have to slow down).

This problem happened before (not as often) and machanic changed crankshaft sensor and lambda semsor (not sure why) This improved it but has come back twice as bad!

Any other details needed to help solve this let me know.
Also, I did recently do a "wiggle test" on wires behind glove box as the blower heater motor wasnt working, this wiggle made the heater work, but im affraid doing this has damaged something else!

Kind regards

Currently in Charlieja's garage:
1995 Renault laguna 2.0 RT
