Mixed fluids

My bad!! I checked the tranny fluid in my 2007 accord, and the level was down a little. So i added what i thought was tranny fluid,but it was power steering fluid. About 2-3 oz.

How bad did i screw up?

Not an expert, but I doubt that it is a calamity.

I checked the capacity in the manual at 96 oz.total change.
So i'm hoping ~3 oz. won't be a issue. By the way,the pwr. steering fluid was Honda type.

Thanks for the reply.

auto trans fluid is basicly high quality turbine oil, p/s fluid is hydraulic fluid, but that small of a mixture is not going to hurt the trans.

murphy was an optimist

Follow up,
I decided to rectify my blunder by draining and refilling the transmission.
