Help! Think I drained Tran fluid
This is pretty embarrassing but I'm seriously worried so oh well....thought I would change my oil yesterday and I'm pretty sure I drained my transmission fluid and not my oil. I drained the big black pan behind the skid plate. Only 2 quarts came out which was my first signal something wasn't right. Then after I added oil, I checked it and it was way too high. I told myself nothing was wrong and drove 30 miles to work this morning. Nothing felt off while driving but I just had this feeling something wasn't right so did some research and figured it out.
I have already gone 30 miles. There is an oil change place about 2 miles away and I'm sure they can add the tran fluid as they do flushes, etc. I'd rather avoid the embarrassment of towing my car from work parking lot but I don't want to mess up my baby either. If I already made it 30, would 2 more hurt?
Yes, I'm an idiot.
Can I add some myself without moving the car or is that hard to do?
