Default i need ideas on how to fix my 01 honda civic?

i have a 2001 honda civic HX. a few days ago my car started making a funny noise i dont really know how to explain the news maybe a klink noise coming from the engine compartment on the left side cant really tell if its on the top or bottom. today i was going down the high way and my car wouldnt respond in 5th gear. it goes in 5th gear but when i give it gas it revs between about 3700-4200 rpms and wont accelerate. any other gear i cannot go above 4000 rpms. i am not knowledgeable in cars so i know this sounds stupid but please just give me ideas on what it could possibly be.

Clogged fuel filter. Fouled spark plugs. Clogged air filter or air filter not present. Defective ignition coil. Defective spark plug wires. Or a hundred other things, check these first.

There just isn't enough information here to give you a good answer. Is the car a stick shift? If so is it possible that the clutch is slipping?

Any check engine light on? If so then have the fault code(s) read and go from there.

Check your distributer. I know this isn't the problem but it sounds like your ECU is running in Limp mode.
