Question Power Steering Fluid in Engine

I accidentally put a few oz. of power steering fluid in instead of engine oil.. the bottles are identical. Will this do any damage? Thanks

Power steering fluid is simply hydrolic fluid with a few extra conditioners. Like motor oil it is a petrolium product and shouldn't bother if it was indeed just a few ounces...like less than 4. If your vehicle is a newer you should probably change the oil right away as the fluid could cause problems with the newer type bearing surfaces.
