Its definitly not the lamber sensor or catalyst that wouldnt cause it to cut out just cause white/black smoke comming out the back. It could be a loose wire under the bonnet which might have been triggered by you driving fast in reverse you can check all the wires under the bonnet and make sure there all connected propaly do this while the ehgine is off and your engine is cold otherwise you could burn yourself

MY 1987 MERCEDEZ BENZ PETROL FILTER IS MAKING NOISE AND AS THE RESULTS MY CAR IS CUTING POWER AFTER 5MINUTES IT WILL RE START AND STOP AGAIN PLEASE HELP


It could be the filter is not leaking gas, but still is leaking enough so that air is being sucked in. Test all fittings.

Engine keeps cuting out when breaks are applied


I would say idle air control valve sticking. its common on Renaults. This valve controls the air passing through the throttle body when you open and shut throttle. eg, foot down throttle open, the idle valve will be shut. back off throttle, then the air is shut off through main throttle body, so the valve opens to allow just enough air in for tickover. if valve sticking or moving to slowly it will not open in time to catch the idle when throttle shut, hence it cuts out.
