Question about 2006 Renault 181
2002 clio 16v wont rev above tickover
This is quite often due to the throttle potentiometer which is the electronic version of the throttle cable.
It comes as a unit and is a d-i-y job to replace if you are mechanically minded

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.

Sounds like idle air control valve sticking. If i remember correctly, the idle air control valve is built into the throttle body. This is the part that connects between the air filter and inlet manifold. take this off and clean thoroughly with carb cleaner. if this does not work, then renew part.
