It sounds like it may be running hot due to extended time lower flow however this usually would not go away simply by putting into gear unless it is increasing water flow in which case it would.
That is the first place I would check as off the top of my head I am not thinking of anything else that would stop by being put into gear.
Thank you!- Joe
