My 51 plate Renault Clio 1.2 16v Dynamique has started to play up and I wonder if anyone can help

I was driving along at 60mph and suddenly the electrical light lit up on the dash and the car suddenly lost all power and went into "limp home" mode!! I managed to pull of the road in the nick of time and restart the engine, and the fault went away. It happens every time I drive it, usually when I am changing gear at high speed or pulling away from a junction. So as you can imagine it is really stressful to drive!

I took it to the garage who decided that it needed a new clutch and a new coolant chamber (£600) but as soon as I pulled away from the garage the problem reoccured!!

Does anyone know what might be wrong, and how much it'd cost to fix?

Thanks :)
