A few possible problems to check up on ..air flow meter MAF, aleays first, air in the fuel lines, replace the pipes... possible weak injector.. even worth checking if you have a partially blocked cat,,

Seconded here. however im not sure a partially blocked cat would clear by switching the engine off and on again, or that it would cause a misfire. maf would explain lack of power but for the misfire id be looking at air in the fuel, then injectors, speaking from personal experience

The MAF is a kind of key dependent thing, where as the CAT is not

A blocked cat will release the pressure build up when the engine is stopped.. and then run ok until it is pressurised again.. but its only a suggestion as something to check..

They seldom do show up on a diag check, sometimes you can just unplug the MAF and the car will run much better, and this is worth a try
