My renault 1.6 TReg megane starts perfectly , i travel about 1 mile up the road and as i come towards red traffic lights i slow and come to a stop revs wavers up & down between 700 to 500 and twice cut out

I would hazard 2 guesses 1, there is an earth lead that bolts near the dip stick that may need cleaning and refitting 2, the crankcase sensor possibly starting to play up it could show up on diagnostics.
There is a third slight possibility that one of your coil packs could be breaking down so that it is not running perfect until warmed up just look to see if they are all the same sometimes patern parts are not 100%.

94 explorer a4ld intermittant 2-3 shift

Are you sure your fluid level is correct? When they don't shift until warmed up,that is usually dirt or low fluid.
I would get a coupla cans of SEA-FOAM trans. treatment,NOT the motor treatment. Follow directions and sit in the car shifting it thru all gears many times. Take it out on freeway and kick it down to make it shift down and let up suddenly to make it upshift. Do this several times.
If it starts working for you,do a filter/fluid change really soon. I have saved them this way,but it's about 50/50 that you'll need a PROPER rebuild or replacement.There is dirt in there somewhere or the pump is giving up on you. don-ohio

This is not what you want to hear, but its time to replace or rebuild the transmission. The clutch packs are worn causing your slipping concern. and your fluid is probably contaminated with the clutch material which can cause hydraulic circuit failure.

Stalling and bucking!

Injectors, even if one is bad, the increase in resistance in the SFI system kills the other injectors too. When it starts to run bad, unplug injectors one at a time to see if it runs better.
