Default Honda Civic Problems?

I own a 99' Civic, manual trans, with 225,000 miles. This car was my aunts daily driver until she gave it to me 2 years ago. Aside from a little leaking/burning oil, it has been running well. However, over the past 2 weeks it has started to drive poorly. Some of the issues...

-Slow acceleration, basically no response even when flooring the pedal

-Fluttering noise during acceleration

-Trouble getting above 40 MPH

-Shaking when its time to shift (usually just revs)

-Low RPM's while stopped and in neutral

I put in Mobil High Mileage 10W-30 around the time it started acting up. I was wondering if too much oil could be the cause of these problems. The dipstick indicates it's high, maybe a liter or more. I was also reading that the catalytic converter could be to blame. I have very little knowledge about cars and am just looking for some insight.

Even if the check engine light isn't on the car may still have a fault code in the computer. Everything you describe would point to a catalytic converter failure but it would be best to scan the computer for any codes. if the converter is bad, you'll get a code.
