Why when my car gets hot does my transmission stop working and my car feels like its in neutral and won't switch gears. It will cool down and start working for a little bit until it gets hot again.

first service the system...if no better..time to rebuild it..

Transmission service s just that: a "service" not a repair or an overhaul in a can. IF the unit had been serviced at somewhat regular intervals, then most of the overhauls I did would not have been so numerous. On the off chance something just broke or individually failed in that unit .... well, it's all academic if the trouble is inside the case, isn't it? FWIW: external linkage problems are extremely few on Hondas .... but get a real transmission shop to look it over .... where you've gone for all your transmission services in the past. Errrr, cancel that last part. Seriously, transmission services are for maintenance. ... not repairs when something's gone bad.
