Car is messing up! NEED HELP QUICK!!!!!!!!

My 97 prelude is messing up bad. My car has like no power when i accelerate and it wont get past a certin RPM. I already cleaned out the solenoid gasket and it fixed it for about a week and now its messing up again. It sometimes doesnt do it for a little bit but then it does it again. Please help.

Gotta love it when people make post saying they're having trouble with their car and they have a check engine light. They never take the first step of actually seeing why the light is on The most simple and cheapest way to find out why the car is possibly messed up
