Default COULD SOMEONE HELP ME PLEASE

I HAVE HONDA THAT SEEM TO GET NO POWER WHEN THE TEMPERATURE GETS TOO
HOT OR IF I DRIVE IT MORE THAN 30-40 MINUTES. IM WONDERING IF ITS
EITHER A CLUTCH PROBLEM OR TRANSMISSION? i DON'T KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT
CARS. THE CAR WILL RUN GREAT WHEN I FIRST DRIVE IT BUT AFTER A CERTAIN
AMOUNT OF DRIVING AND/OR HOT WEATHER, THE RPMS JUST REVS UP SO I HAVE
TO TURN IT OFF AND WAIT ABOUT HALF AN HOUR TO GET IT MOVING AGAIN.

The first thing to do is to turn your CapsLock key off.

1) Turn off your Caps Lock key. English is written with both upper and
lower case.
2) What year and model?
3) Mileage?
4) How long have you owned the car?
5) When did the problem first surface?

I guessing here that the car has an automatic transmission, and that its
losing drive when it gets hot. A slipping clutch (with manual transmission)
usually does not fail this way, unless the engine is leakig oil out the rear
main seal.

First step: get the transmission oil level checked. If you've never had the
oil changed, have it done and see if the problem recurs.

Check back here if it does.
