If they ship you convienence checks, as some cards does & the car loan is less than your credit limit, it's possible. Chase done that for me once, 4-5 years later, deposited the money in my back account, because the auto loan was through them. So indirectly, they gave me 0% for 36 months, versus the 9.5% (prevailing rate at time) I had paid for over a year.
BTW, I didn't charge anything else on the card until the car was paid off. Otherwise, may well had been payingh 18% by running up a ton of other bills, plus if not paid off within the 36 months, the 18% is charged from the transfer date, not what's left over.
So please be careful in choosing this strategy in paying an auto loan, could backfire & cost thousands more. Even one missed or late payment can trigger the default cash withdrawal or penalty interest rates, sometimes as high as 36.99%.
