They only way to damage valves in the engine is by over reving. That would be vary unusual with an automatic. Even in a manual it will only happen if you blow a shift by downshifting instead of upshifting.
I suppose if the auto tranny grenaded anything could happen. The computer won't let it over rev normally.
