    so im putting some tranny fluid in my GTS today and i have my fiance hand me the quart of tranny fluid and she accidently grabs the wrong quart and hands me PS fluid. I began to pur and maybe 1/4 of a shot glass got poured in my tranny. I know this is bad but could it be potentialy lethal to drive my car about 10 blocks?

    Ironically back in the old days, particularly for American cars, transmission fluid was also used for power steering fluid. I do not think you have done any damage at all. However, you may want to change the tranny fluid now.

    Actually you help the tranny out!
    Because you can use it in there- it will help seal up the gaskets it has- A small amopunt can be used in the engine- It will basically make the gaskets swell up!! :lol:

    that only works for worst case times and plan on rebuilding the entire motor or trans. and to top that off it's brake fluid that does that not trans fluid or PS fluid. i would just redrain the trans, pour a qt of trans fluid through it and let it drain, then fill the trans with syncromesh. atf sucks balls.
