I don't know about the carpet situation, but for flat towing, it should be as simple as having the trans in neutral. If you want to be absolutely sure no damage is going to happen, pull the rear drive-shaft out of the vehicle. That way there will not be any power to the trans.

Not helpful. You cannot tow an automatic with the drive wheels down under ANY circumstance whatsoever. You will destroy the transmission. Pulling the drive shaft is an option. So is a dolly.


Andrew is right the output shaft doesn't circulate any tranny fluid, she will sieze. Trailer and dolly work. Or the driveshaft. Here is a product that I found awhile back. It's not cheap but would solve the problem.
