On the Renault Clio 2004 model automatic a light that looks like a hooter comes on, only when the car is cold and then sort of cuts out. If we have driven with car and its hot it doesn't happen.

sounds like the low coolant warning! the light will go out when coolant warms up as it expands and the level will be raised enough to switch off the level sensor may be simple as that check the level when cold.

In cold weather it take forever for the heater to warm the car, I can start it then let it run for a half an hour and then drive 30 miles and still is not warm enough

Could be a faulty thermostat not letting the engine come up to proper temperature...also low fluid level could cause fluid to not circulate through the heater core.
Verify operation of thermostat, verify coolant level.
More info would be a help.
Take care.

Heater is blowing luke warm air. does not get any hotter

Quite a few idea's come to mind.
1) Thermostat is stuck open, causing the engine to run cool.
2) The vacuum valve that opens and closes the air "flap" is stuck open, allowing cool air in all the time.
3) The vacuum valve that opens and closes the line that feeds the heater core isn't opening all the way.

Where do I topup the auto transmission fluid

The dipstick for you car is the only thing I cannot remember.It will be to the back part of the motor and there is 2 in the engine bay.Its the one that is most probably towards the side.To check the trans oil level you warm the car up,park it and put the gears through all the gears and end up in nuetral.Now check the level.If it needs fluid,you fill it through the dipstick tube.SlowlyThe trans fluid bottles that you buy come with a tube to help fill the trans.Hope this helps
