It does it all the time even when the engine is warmed up

Well that narrows it down,,,

Have you had anything done to the car recently?

Have you done the neccessary maintenance and checked all fluid levels, etc.

You know these cars are notorious for either burning or leaking oil.

I'm pretty sure it burns oil. Could that be the problem?

CEL's are the codes that the car throws when things are at fault. Like sensors and etc etc.

For example like in my case back then....I too was stuck at around 5000RPM and at random times my speedo (speedometer) would randomly jus shut off and drop down to ZERO for like a few secs and then jump back to its actual speed.

After gettin flamed and researching....I bought a new VSS (Vehicle speed sensor) and replaced that as well as took off my VTEC solenoid and clean the gasket out. Mind you it did have a few chunks of dirt stuck on the filter.

After doing those 2...I was back to normal!!!

But in your case go to PEPBOYS or AUTOZONE and have them read the CELs that your car is pulling up!!!

Yea your car sounds like it is in limp mode. If that doesn't work you need to find out the codes asap!
