Driving issues

hey guys new here and have an 2002 maxima with 126xxx. First start up it runs good. I go and hit the pedal to the metal and it revs high and sounds like it's over reving without getting close to the red. A while before I parked it tinkering it sometimes at a dead stop to acceleration it would fall and die out. I've done fluids, plugs checked timing chain, cleaners through the motor and cleaned the MAF sensor. Any pin point ideas? I hate to pay a mechanic for what I can do that I'm over looking.

Could be your MAF sensor, believe it or not my car wouldn't rev above 4k at any throttle position. Changed the MAF sensor and fixed it.
