Doing oil change today i put a 1/2 a quart of trans fluid in by accident.Both bottles where blue and didn't catch it till then.Will this hurt anything??I already had 9 quarts of oil in when i caught it.

I know you hate to hear it, but I would pull it out. ATF has alot of friction modifiers and with that small of a sump, thats alot to have in there.

Some old timers have been known to add atf to the oil prior to a change to clean the motor out.
