It's very likely a valve stem seal that has split. This will allow oil into the cylinder from the crank gallery.
Off with it's head! I'm afraid.
The only other thing it can be is overfueling - but then it will be sputtering and lagging on acceleration.
You can check which cylinder is affected by removing the plugs and looking for the oily one. They will all need replacing really as it's false economy to do just 1. The seals are cheap. I would get a new cambelt fitted at the same time - as it has to come off anyway.
(If this leads to a solution, please take the time to rate as Fixya! - Thank you)

Try the relays under the bonnet fuse box 4 small black ones in a line, the first 2 from top cut of the fuel pump, and are a renowned cause of 85% of cranking without starting faults on the dci engine swap them over for the bottom 2 .
If it starts, buy 2 from Renault and fit
if the engine still fails to start the egr valve may be stuck closed starving the engine of air, its on the top of the engine at the air intake and has 3 bolts, remove it and clean it with carb cleaner then check its condition, if it appears ok, replace the cleaned one, if not you need a new one or the turbo will blow its seals and the engine will rev and burn on the engines own oil.
beyond this and your diy fixes are at an end without a obd2 code reader.

You could have had a coil pack which was breaking down and has finally given up the ghost, or you could have a faulty O2 sensor.
If the car feels as though it is missing a cylinder then have the coil packs checked out.

if your not an eperence mechanic the best and easy way is to change the whole bottom arm this is alittle more money but alot quicker and easyer for a non mechanic. first you will need to remove the ball joint from the hub the best way to do this is with forse and a hammer . Then you will need to remove the 2 botls that holed the arm to the subframe then the arm should drop out you may need to help it with a hammer lol. And just reverse what you did to fit the new arm making sure to fit the ball joint back into the hub last .
