Would a loose tranny pan cause tranny to go into "limp mode"?

Hey guys,

I noticed a spot under my truck when my truck was at an incline, after getting under there I noticed drips of tranny fluid and slow steady drip of some kind of frame bar below the tranny... I went to clean the drips of and discovered that the bolts towards the rear were so loose I could have unscrewed them by hand, the other bolts were loose too but not as bad. Prior to this the reason why I parked it was because the O/D light would flash on hot days and cause a hard shift. Would the loose pan be enough to cause the tranny to go into limp mode??? I would scan for codes but I cannot find a scanner from ford that will fit my truck

Thanks!

Low fluid could cause that so, I guess indirectly, the loose pan caused a shift issue lol
