Question about 2003 Renault Megane
Check the timing belt. It should have been changed at 60,000 miles. Sounds like you have lost some teeth on the synchronous belt resulting in lost timing. Damage to valves can occur. look under plastic cover on the end of the head for the belt

look on the brake pedal assembly and their is some sensors that run off the throttle and brake and clutch,could be these are playing.But it is a renault with encrypted software so evan if you can get fault codes read they dont always show the right fault codes ,this is deliberate ploy to create work for the dealers.Trust me on this one

I have 2 meganes im working on at the moment both have the same problem. the electrical falt light is on coz the pipe has snapped (or come off) under the bonnet on the passangers side close to the window (theres a black box about 2 inch wide the pipe connects underneath). if I reconect the pipe and grab the engien with both hands it wobbles and the pipe pulls off. I suspect this is coz one (or all) the engien mountings are shagged. and this will be the cause of the juddering when driveing in first and second gears. solutions iv have come across for juddering involve changeing the coil pack but thats nothing to do with the problem my 2 cars have as one of them has new coils. they are 1.6 petrol, p reg and s reg

SOURCE: Scenic 1997 1.6e loses power
judering sounds like brakes ,but iam no doubt wrong it could be a valve allowing air into manifold not working ,loss of power is no doubt caused by the same component,best advice apart from burning it and giving the agincourt salute is take it too dealers as most renaults use a lot of software based programs ,some are readable and some are not ,new ones use encrypted software ,mechanics nightmare these cars ,another pos is the valve control on the throttle ,,,but it would be cheaper in the long run to use the dealer

Or dont keep your foot on it all the time as this will make it hot, Best is to go into Neut as much as you can to give it a rest from biting all the time
