Question about 2008 Toyota Yaris Sedan
My wife's Yaris stalls when stopped at lights after first juddering. Also when she accelerates, whether on a highway or after slowing down around a bend, the car completely loses power and sometimes the exhaust "POPS". One 1 occassion it failed toaccelerate from a standstill after pulling over at the side of the road for a few minutes with the engine running. The problem only seems to occur after the car has been running for a while, it's fine first thing in the morning
Only going with Toyota because they see many Yaris problems, it may be the problem. I have several bits of advice. Find out if the O2 sensor is classified as a Federal Pollution Warranty device. The Federal government requires a 7 Year and I believe 70,000 to 100,000 Mile Warranty on parts affecting the Emissions requirements.
This means a FREE repair. Also go to Aboutautomobile.com and toggle through the menu and select your car to find out about Recalls and TSB's. There may be more info about other things wrong on your car.
I hope my solution is helpful, please rate my response.

remove the front 02sensor and drive the car like that, remove means complety take it apart from exaust, if problem goes away or gets so much better then your catalitic converter at the exaust is restricted and need a new one

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

You could have a dirty EGR valve, you can re move it from the manifold and clean it with Throttle body cleaner. Might as well buy two cans, since your cleaning the EGR, might as well clean out the throttle body too.
Spray the throttle body cleaner in to the throttle body with the engine running and try to keep it at 1000 rpm and then to 1500 rpm as you clean out the throttle body and let it idle down for 2 min then turn the engine off. Then turn the engine to the run position for 10 seconds and start and let idle, ro for a test drive and hope that solved the problem, if not there a few more things we can do which will consist for tune up.
Note: Clean the EGR first so you don't burn your self since the engine would still be cool before you clean the Throttle body.
Good luck and keep me posted.

It sounds like there may be an issue with your ignition system.
Check the ignition wires, distributor cap, spark plugs.
