Hi I accidentally poured little bit of motor oil into transmission. Just wondering if it would do anything to the vehicle.

How much?

Tester

Not very much. Just when I started pouring i noticed it was motor oil i was putting into it.

Don’t worry about.

Transmission fluid is a straight 10 weight oil with slightly different additives.

So the motor oil wouldnt affect the tranny? Was 5w-30 that was poured into transmission. But ya wasnt very much.

Nope. You’re fine.
