please be very wary, I've just had the mis-fortune to have suffered the same thing. Clio 1.5dci extreme, it too was juddering slightly, revs going to 0, this happened twice & unfortunately for me the 2nd time seems to have been fatal.

Had to get the RAC to tow me to the local garage, explanation of the problem......fuel pump has collapsed internally, placing metal filings into the fuel dist system. Now talking to Renault direct, they say it'll be a complete re-new of entire fuel dist system and 'cause I bought the 52 plate as nearly new, they've told me it's not covered by warranty & they won't entertain doing anything as a goodwill gesture. My car has only done 42k and been fully serviced, now looking at 2.5k + bill to get it back up and running !!! Not a happy camper

Has anyone else suffered anything similar ??
Currently in alpirrie's garage:
clio 1.5 dci extreme
