Yes it can but also check air filter and clean throttle body replace fuel filter if have not done so in a while add Lucas Fuel Injector Cleaner to gas tank.

When was the last time you did service in the Trany? I don't think a dirty throttle body will cause Trany to shift with long delay and I thing you are getting stuck in 2 gear on take off. Check your trans fluid and do a service but you should get it diagnose by a shop To get a diagnose
