I don't think any front wheel drive automatic can be towed without modifications done on it to pump fluid through the transmission

Actually there were a bunch of '90's & '00's mid-size and compact FWD GMs that shared a common transaxle and could be flat towed.

Is the '08 Grand Prix one of them? Don't know. The Owner's Manual will have the correct information.

It can only be towed with the front wheels on a dolly and not with all (4) wheels on the ground, according to the owners manual. Obtain a copy here Pontiac Vehicle Owner’s Manuals | Pontiac and look at section 4-27.
