It can yes, in some cars if the engine does not reach operating temperature like if the engine has no cooling system thermostat or the thermostat is stuck open the system will not go into closed loop keeping it from shifting into overdrive. Can I ask if the temperature gauge needle is in the middle of the gauge? Also, we should run the codes.
