Have it read for codes, even if the check engine light is NOT on the computer will have stored information and codes. Discount auto stores will read codes for no fee. write them down. THEN... check fuel pressure at the fuel rail use a gauge and read how many PSI of fuel pressure.

i did that and they said it catylatic converte bank 2 and some other thing up under the hood like fuel evapaeration sensor or something...

Barry sounds like it needs an upstream 02 sensor on bank 2 the EVAP code or sensor wont make it behave like you describe shold write down the codes.

onnly showed two codes rthe catilatic convertor and one other thing

The simple way to check If the cat is restricting the engine is to connect a vacuum gauge to the engine so it reads direct intake vacuum expect 17-21Hgin of vacuum at idle back pressure (the catalytic converter) will reduce this! also..Change the upstream number 1 02 sensor on bank 2
