When its warm outside! My car comes to the point where it will not go forward. I have a 5 speed. And when I put the car in gear it doesn't move. But when I start up in the morning its running okay. But if I try to go over 5 to 10 miles and its over 65 or 70 degrees. My engine loses power and then its seems like it locks up. But after it sits for a while I can put it into gear and move forward.

So does engine rev up in neutral? Are you saying engine runs but when you try to drive it quits?

Have the clutch hydraulic system checked.

The master cylinder push rod could be out of adjustment causing the fluids not returning and heat build up pressure in the system to cause cluth system to self apply.

If hydraulic system is good, you have a failing clutch.
