I think hydraulic cylinders work much the same way, just with hydraulic pressure applied to either side as needed to provide power. Block one set of turbines and the other continues to have some degree of freedom. Combustion and steam generation are continuous processes indepdent of rotation speed.
Without it, the engine will die because there isn't enough mass to keep it going between piston firings. This leads to the clutch plates slamming against each other, resulting in the engine cutting out and shuddering to a halt. Coordinating your hands and feet to move the car takes practice and during the first few attempts,you are very likely to stall the vehicle. I once temporarily lost control of an automatic in patchy ice; the idle was wrong or something don't remember but the effect was that the converter didn't slip enough to let me brake the back wheels properly.

It's almost as if the car bottoms out and drastically loses speed and power. The engine isn't just fighting its own pumping losses, it's fighting the resistance of your wheels and entire drivetrain while trying to turn.
