No! The critreria for the P1 700 code calls for 2 consecutive TRIPS with this problem.
When the weather is cold this will happen quickly, but in warmer weather this might not happen every day.
The code means that the TRANSMISSION isn't staying in gear long enough when driving for the first time each day, CATALYST warm-up. Very common code!!
