Help!!!!

I have an 03 acura mdx. Originally I thought the catalytic converter was clogged. Got it taken off cleaned. Car is quieter! However it seems to not want to rev over 3000 rpms when I first start driving it does fine, but after driving for a while it seems like I cant get gas. So basically I've got to let my car sit and cool off then I can drive it again. Also having issues going uphill. Though maybe gas pedal sensor, however if that's the case wouldn't it happen all the time? Any suggestions

Welcome to the forums.

Since this is a topic/technical issue which will require replies and discussion, this thread has been moved from the New Member Introductions forum to the model specific forum.

are you throwing any engine codes???? that would be the first step in diagnosing what is wrong, figuring out what the car is telling you is wrong.
Next, did you/are you sure you connected everything back up? a missing or disconnected sensor can lead to wonky things.

Its telling me I've got a misfire on cylinders 1,3,5. So I'm gonna start there with spark plugs. It sometimes dies too while I'm driving. I'm going to buy an owners manual. I think I'm gonna get a new 02 sensor but maybe its the eic sensor on the cylanoid
