What if I put my oil in the ATf oil place????
By mistake I put my engine synthinic oil into the automatic transmission fluid
spot, what to do now???
I think you mean the Power steering reservoir which says ATF on top. If you didn't start the car yet you can turkey baster most of the oil out , I use a clean soap dispenser pump, it fits much better, pump into a small container or bowl. Then refill with the proper ATF, (Dex/Merc)., check the level on the cap/stick. Start the car then and turn the steering wheel lock to lock and recheck the level of the fluid. Top off if needed.
Engine oil in the transmission would mean draining and replacing all the fluid. If you started the car I would have it towed to a place that can do a transmission flush.
I did the same thing...had to have my transmission flushed. And add new.
I have a 2002 Windstar Van 204k miles and started with a minor leak of coolant. Oil is getting into the coolant. Used kW Head gasket repair solution and did what it said and now the leak is worse. Any ideas on this and what can be done?
On the Windstar, don't be driving it if the coolant is getting into the oil, it will mess up your bearings, The head gaskets and appropriate work need to be done to stop the leak.If oil is getting into the coolant, then coolant is getting into the oil.
Time for a new head gasket or two on the Windstar. Anything else will not fix the problem.
Thanks for your input. I thought as well but was hoping there was another solution.
