Thumbs down wrong stuff

I was adding some oil to the engine when I accidently grabbed a quart of Mercon III and started to add to the crankcase. I quickly saw the fluid was red and pulled it back out. My Question is with approximatly no more the maybe 1 or 2 Oz of tranny fluid Should I drain all the oil or will it blend in with the OIL and not harm anything. Need answer quickly please

Insomnia sounds serious, But I wouldn't loose any sleep over it.

Transmission fluid is pure detergent, it is good for engine flush.

Put the whole quart in, then 1000 miles later, change the oil again to get all the crud you just cleaned out of the engine

I'll fourth or fifth the prior comments. Atleast you didn't accidentally pour engine oil into your brake fluid reservoir. The eventual destruction is epic and kind of hilarious when customers brought their cars in for a 'really spongy pedal'.

I'll have to say that I myself am guilty of trying to fill the crankcase without the drain plug in...but I did the full 5 quarts. Luckily I was in my schools auto shop and had plenty of speedy dry at my disposal.

I did that once rushing an oil change on a 3.8 van; the one time I don't check for the old gasket it happens to me. It's a fun mess to clean up...

Needs more stall.

I use 1/2 a quart of trans fluid as a seal sweller; it works as good as anything.

I usually add it the last few days before I change it; the last drive I do before I change it, I add 1/2 can of Seafoam.

The oil comes out black as hell after the Seafoam, even if it looked clean on the stick before, lol.
