What makes a 1998 honda accord transmission go into limp mode and how do I fix or resolve this problem

What do you mean by limp mode? Do you mean "not pulling"? When the strainer inside the casing gets clogged, the fluid can't circulate meaning, the transmission will stop working. Regular fluid changes would prevent this and give long life to the transmission.

98 nissan altima won't stay started. Changed Fuel pump,strainer,and filter

The following are the general instructions on the start of diagnosing any electronically controlled engine or transmission problem.

The engine and the automatic transmission (transmission control is only for automatics, engine is still computer controlled no matter the transmission type) in this vehicle are computer controlled and in most cases when a fault occurs a fault code is stored in the memory of the computer control module. There are exception to this, such as the Mass Airflow Meter and fuel pressure problems. What must be done is to have all the basic testing done such as a scan of the system for fault codes as well as a check with a live data scanner tool for engine functions that are not within range of normal, a trained technician is required to know what is correct and what isn't, then based on careful diagnostics done from a factory repair manual the correct part is replaced or the wiring repaired or the computer replaced (known as the PCM or ECM,ECU), which is very rarely the problem. Other basic checks must be done as well such as mechanical problems with the engine as well as engine state of tune and mileage on the engine. The transmission can have mechanical issues as well such as no gear engagement at all or a failed pump or other pressure related problems. Also engine mechanical problems can and do cause many drive-ability related problem such as rough idle and other symptoms.

1998 toyota corolla transmission heats up and quits

From my experience with transmissions your clutches are going out. If i am correct it run fine and even shifts good until it get hot correct? Check your trans strainer and inspect for dirty sludge in strainer if so that is residue from your clutches if not change fluid and strainer and see what happens.
