Being a retired dealer tech I can say for sure I never ever ripped anyone off ever!!!!!!!! if they say (dealer) they needed access then you did not understand what they had to do and decided they where putting it to you, you go ahead and throw parts at the problem, you may or may not get lucky, I wish you the best of luck, and you Jacko rubbed me the wrong way.

Check your fuel pump presure. Pump is in the tank. Also try and loosen the fuel cap, the tank vent may be stopped up.

SOURCE: my prelude wiil not accelerate past 30 to 40 miles per hour

Generally the symptoms say the catalytic converter is clogged, you can't get any air out so you can't pull any air in, and the age of the vehicle says so too. Look and see if it has ever been replaced.

The car will start and even run idling for 20 minutes no problem, but as soon as I drive it a couple of miles it dies and wont start. If I let it sit for a cuople of hours it starts again. Any ideas?

Check all the vaccum lines and throttle body make sure its not to drity.the throttlebody air intake plate sounds like it is sticking open if so clean it out with throottlebody cleaner.and it should run good if not your fuel pump maybe going bad wish I could look at it goodluck

You definitly have a timing problem. I dont think its a fuel problem due to the age of your car. Its about past due for a timing belt/chain replacement.

Engine knock

The idle issue is normal. The idle is controlled by the ECU. There are no adjustments for the idle. Regarding the knocking noise, that could be several things, and I am hesitant to comment without hearing it. Take it to a Toyota Dealer & have a tech listen to it. We are very good at identifying noises on the service drive.
