I don't know about what happened to your GC but for future reference,for front wheel drive there are tow-bars set-ups that will tow it with the front wheels off the ground

Thankyou, yes I am aware of that fact..89 yr old .fathers vehicle, moving him north with what he had & I did check w/ dealership...which was my obvious mistake Still would love an answer to give me some ideas what the mechaNICAL PROBLEM IS....

It's just that your question is very difficult to diagnose with without being at the car. Sorry I was no help, but I do not see how it could be master cylinder, that is a brake component and the damage has something to do with the transaxle turning while towing, nothing to do with brakes. Some of those AAA drivers are quite knowledgeable, and others think they are and say something stupid to impress you and make you think he knows something, but does not
