Rev limit at 4K, limp mode?

So for about a year or so now my car has had this thing going on where if I drop the gas pedal in any gear other than first it will hit a 4K rev limit, but if I ease into the gas it will go past 4K fine, another thing is if I ease past 4K ythen drop the gas my car will go to about 5k then jerk forward, any help will be very greatly appreciated

It sure would help others to help you if you actually provided some information about your car:

- bone stock?
- is it tuned?
- anything else that actually may provide some insight on what could cause your issue?

Doesn't sound like limp mode. If it was, you wouldn't be able to rev past 4k rpm's no matter what. Could be a number of issues.

Like MorningZ said, more info is definitely needed.

Is it throwing a check engine light? Either solidly or intermittently. The ECU will limit revs in a number of conditions if it isn't "seeing" all the info it needs to run the engine properly. Start simple. Check the major sensor connections, TPS, MAP, etc. Problems like this can be very tough to diagnose. Even more so over the internet. If your intent on fixing it yourself. I highly recommend getting a factory service manual either in hard copy or pdf. If you don't already have one. The chilton/haynes manuals only get you so far. My FSM has saved me so many times with solving issues with my teg. I hope any of this helps. Sometimes you just gotta concede and get someone else to look at it in person. Even if that means paying a mechanic. I'd suggest trying to find someone who specializes in Honda/Acura's that would know all the quirks/common problems that these cars have.
