The following are the general instructions on the start of diagnosing any electronically controlled engine or transmission problem.

The engine and the automatic transmission (transmission control is only for automatics, engine is still computer controlled no matter the transmission type) in this vehicle are computer controlled and in most cases when a fault occurs a fault code is stored in the memory of the computer control module. There are exception to this, such as the Mass Airflow Meter and fuel pressure problems. What must be done is to have all the basic testing done such as a scan of the system for fault codes as well as a check with a live data scanner tool for engine functions that are not within range of normal, a trained technician is required to know what is correct and what isn't, then based on careful diagnostics done from a factory repair manual the correct part is replaced or the wiring repaired or the computer replaced (known as the PCM), which is very rarely the problem. Other basic checks must be done as well such as mechanical problems with the engine as well as engine state of tune and mileage on the engine. The transmission can have mechanical issues as well such as no gear engagement at all or a failed pump or other pressure related problems. Also engine mechanical problems can and do cause many drive-ability related problem such as rough idle and other symptoms.

Air runs until car runs a distance and engine is shut down. when restart air is not cool?

Well of course not. When you shut the car down, all water circulation stops so engine heat goes way up. This means the radiator gets hot too, and therefore so does the AC condensor. It takes time for all these things to cool back down when you start it back up.

Water tempature gauge shows hot when car is cool ;and hasn't been driven

It sounds like the temp sender may be bad. This is the sensor that sends a signal to the gauge on the dash (as opposed to the engine coolant temperature (ECT) sensor that goes to the ECU instead.) It is located on the bottom front of the thermostat housing (which you will find if you follow the large hose from the top right of the radiator.)

Before replacing, make sure the connection is clean and secure, then check the wiring for any obvious failures.

04 model renault megaine convertable just stops while driving,restarts ok then just stops.when its running runs intermitant and can fail when its hot or cold no warning lights on dash and no fault...

It may be an intermittent loss of signal from either the crankshaft or camshaft sensors, the ignition system, or the ecu itself. Usually these kinds of problems require driving with a scanner hooked up and recording any failure on the fly. Good luck!

AC cools then blows hot air, tempature needle goes up & down

Sounds like the thermostat is trying to stick,and is causing the engine to over heat,therefore condenser is not cooling the freon down enough to cool.Have the thermostat changed and the cooling system bled out,this is most likely the cause.
