Hello again, thank you for your reply.. There is a common fault with these models - and this is whats known as the CKP - crank shaft sensor... This is located on the top of the gearbox where it meets the engine - move the pipes etc to see it - and it is held on by 2 x 10 mm bolts..... Unclip the connector and remove it - and fit the new one - supplied by a Renault dealer parts dept.. Dont be tempted to buy / use a non Renault one, they can be troublesome and don't last..Its a very straightforward job and again - a very common issue that causes the problems you describe. Its basically that the sensor gets hot - and shuts down.. this being the main trigger for the fueling system etc - it will cut your engine as if it has been switched off. When the sensor cools even momentarily, it will work again - until the next time.. If your old one is black - you will have to fit a "kit " that they will supply - comprising a new sensor and piece of wire loom - though on the 07 , it should be just a sensor really that you will be given.. Either way.. it still only takes 20 mins or so for whoever does it..so if you use a garage, its not an expensive job labour wise - the sensor is around the 50£ mark. Just to mention too - this will 9 / 10 not show up as a fault on a computer - not when its an intermittent fault such as yours..Of course you could have other issues - but that sensor is very very common on these - and fits with your description of the faults you have...so it would make sense to have that investigated / done. If you take it to Renault or another garage, they may want to run a diagnostic test to confirm , this is not unusual.Im very pleased to have helped you -Let me know if I can help anymore...I will be back on system later in the day - and will always get back to you asap if needed.

Hi, I am a Car/ vehicle technician of 34 years. 29of -running my own repair/diagnostic business.
thank you very much for the reply, one last related question, is this the only possible cause for the engine cutting off?
Hello again - thank you for your message - my apologies that I couldn't get back to you sooner ..Its not the only possible cause - but it is the most common - and a known fault on these models...I noted that you have had the injectors done - they are a cause of this issue too...but it shouldn't be that of course, not as you have had those done.You can also get "rarer" faults causing cut offs - such as bad connections / wiring - even control unit / module or ignition faults that can cause a cut out - but that / those are rare - espeically on this year - whereas again, the crank sensor is a common issue and so should always be checked / addressed first as the cheapest / cost effective way forward...I hope that helps you further - Best Rgds- MIKE.
