Have you had an oil pressure switch replaced recently ? If so the problem is probably the engine wiring loom,what happens is the oil leaks into the loom and ends up at the plugs for the ECU and the coil pack and crank sensors,meaning they all need to be replaced.

Sounds like it could be a bad EGR valve, the trans fault codes of p1775 is nothing really, it could even be the fact that you are putting the car in gear at 3,000 revs.
If this is an intermittant problem then it goes right back to the egr valve. They clog and stick and will cause bad/rough idle issues especially on start up and also will cause spiratic idle problems.

I took my car to a Renault dealer and they solved the same problem by replacing the non-standard 4 prong spark plugs that the previous owner had in the car with the standard 2 prong spark plugs Renault recommends. My water pump also needed to be replaced (different issue, and was identified with a mechanical noise). I also proactively changed the fuel and oil filters along with new oil.
You might also want to look at getting the coils tested, as these tend to fail often causing loss of power, and a mechanical noise.
In most situations, it is better to take your car to the approved Renault dealer to check the fault. My experience with using other mechanics to fix faults on the car was less than desirable, and ends up costing more.
