hi sounds pretty bad
i have a megane coupe with the same engine and i had the same problem the car would jump foward then loose power intermitantly
i found out that it was the map sensor it is located on the bulk head its a wee black box with a hose coming out of it and goimg into the back of the inlet manifold there was a small slit on the elbow of the pipe and that was what was wrong with my car
a diagnostic check cost me £65 from the stealership and they should be able to pin point the problem
there are also other sensors to check like tdc sensor or throtle sensor trust me you are on the same windy road i was on my ecu went dead 3 weeks ago and it cost me £800 to diagnose the problem and fix it hope this helps a wee bit good luck
