Default rpm of my honda accord goes up and down with engine light?

hello everyone!!! yesterday when i was on express way ramp. the car all of a sudden started slowing down. i cant go more then 25 to 30 mph. rpm will not go higher then 2 to 3k max. as i start the car the rpm will go up and down in park. when i change into drive it sounds really horrible and slowly takes off. everytime i stop at stop sign. the car makes noise like it just misfired. i think it is from changing gears. a mechanic to the nearest shop told me he has to replace the part. and it is going to cost $700+ labor. i have been searching online for this issue for past few hours. i did find a lot of posts but nothing specific to honda accord 2008. also the car has less then 70k miles on it. it never acted up before. i am pretty dumb when it comes to automobile. lol. all i was told was some kind of sensor needs to be replaced. and when i took the car mechanic connected some machine to the pedal. plz help. any help is greatly appriciated. thank you for your time. i just want to make sure i am not getting ripped off. thank you again.

That's probably very INcorrect.

Sensors don't make backfiring type noises. But what sensor do do is SENSE conditions in the emissions stream and engine that are troublesome and that will set off the CEL for you. Where you are at right now, basically.

So, obviously, something is wrong, but without a diagnostic scan, we can't point you in any helpful direction...except for a good shop of your choice for proper diagnosis and repair.
