It is true that a vehicle with an automatic transmission can start in either park or neutral.
Yes .. Most cars with automatic transmissions have some sort of filter, either in the transmission pan, or a spin on filter attached to the transmission or in one of the transmission lines.
The answer is no. Whether you've got a standard or automatic might make a difference but I doubt it. Our truck however has had a lot of transmission issues among other problems and although we can put it in 4 wheel high in any gear, to put it in 4 wheel low we have to shift it to neutral and turn the truck off...it will either work for you or it won't.
Yes. Either you have an automatic 4L60E or a manual NV3500. Both can withstand the full range of what's available in a GM small block... in naturally aspirated form. If you get to adding a turbo, then you'd want to upgrade to a 4L80E or NV4500.
There's two ways to do it. Either you remove the driveshaft, or you accept replacing a transmission. Even with the driveshaft removed, flat towing a front wheel drive car is generally not a recommended practice, and you really should get a dolly for it.

All cars have a neutral gear and all cars will start in neutral. It is recommended by all vehicle manufactures that the car's transmission be left in either park or neutral and that the emergency brake be set. If the vehicle has an automatic transmission, then PARK is the safest gear, but most cars have manual transmission and no park gear, so the safest gear is NEUTRAL with the parking brake engaged.
If it has a manual transmission, you simply put it into neutral. If it's a 4x4 and has a manual transfer case, either with a manual or automatic transmission, you simply put that into neutral. If it's a 2wd with an automatic, or a 4wd with an automatic transmission and an electronic transfer case which does not have the option to put the transfer case into neutral, then you have to disconnect the driveshafts.

switch is either on side of transmission, or under the dash
Most automatic transmissions do not have a filler plug or cap. The transmission fluid is added by using a long-neck funnel, which is placed in the tube the dipstick for the transmission sits in. Be sure to test the level while the engine is running, with the transmission in either park or neutral. Be very careful not to over fill the transmission, and make sure that you have the right kind of transmission fluid for your vehicle.
The Neutral Safety switch enables the vehicle to ONLY start in either Park or neutral for Automatics and Only when clutch is engaged in vehicles with a manual Transmission. The switch will either work or not work. Their is no slow fade in operation. If the neutral safety switch is bad it will not send a signal or ground out the transmission so the vehicle will start. ALSO...If the wire leading to or from the switch is frayed , cut, or disconnected, the vehicle when not be able to start as well.
The transmission fluid in an automatic transmission is added through the same tube that the dipstick sits in. For adding fluid, it is best to purchase a long-neck funnel, which is made just for this purpose. Be careful not to overfill the transmission. Always check the fluid level with the engine running, the transmission in either 'park' or 'neutral', and the vehicle on level ground.
If you have a manual transmission, all you have to do to flat tow it is put it into neutral. If it's a 4x4 and you have a manual transfer case, you can manage by putting the transfer case in neutral, whether it has an automatic or manual transmission. If it's a 2WD with an automatic, or a 4x4 with both an automatic transmission and an electronic transfer case with no neutral position, you'll need a trailer or else you'll need to remove either the driveshafts or axle shafts.
If manual transmission, depress the clutch and move the shift lever into neutral. If automatic transmission, you will need the keys to unlock the shifter mechanism. There is no other way around it. As a side note, you will not be able to removed the key in neutral either as it must be in Park. Either way, with the auto trans, one is hosed.
Poor information. If it is an automatic, most likely the 3rd gear is out (It's actually in 3rd gear, but with no clutch plates, it just slips) or on an Electronic Automatic, either the above or a shift solenoid isn't reacting to signal (bad). Vehicle specific would help
It can come with either one. But the standard is an automatic transmission.
