ATF-4 fluid used in CVT Transmission

Hi All, Amazon.com in error mix in 1 Qt of ATF-4 with my order of 6 CVT fluid. I did not notice it until I was done pouring it in my 208 Nissan Sentra. I did not start the car and immediately drained it out. Do you think my CVT trans will be OK? Thank for any help

No problem. Refill with the correct CVT fluid and you’re good to go.

As long as the car wasn’t started you’ll be fine, other than needing a car to drive to the parts store today.

Cool! Thanks for ur help…
