Alright, I edited out the references to what drives the lubrication pumps. Unless your car can be "flat-towed", an automatic transmission will not receive proper lubrication and could prematurely fail, so the point still applies.

See the thread Solution for coasting an automatic transmission: external oil pump

But don't go to the trouble on a transmission that's been coasted extensively. It could already be near failure.
