Question about 1999 Honda Civic
May not be the solution but I have encountered this before on other transmissions. It sounds like there is something coming apart, most likely clutches or bands, what happens is material settle to the bottom of the tranny pan and after about thirty minute of driving the sediment begins to plug your filter restricting fluid flow witch in turn stops the tranny from engaging. After stopping for a few minutes and letting the car rest the sediment settle back to the bottom of the pan and the tranny functions properly again for a little while. If you try to replace the filter I reccomend putting the same old fluid back in. If you put new fluid in an already failling tranny you take a good chance of wiping it completely out. It could also be a shift solenoid that just malfunctions after it heats up. Either way it is internal and I would suggest putting it in the shop and having it checked out.
