Don't ask why but I did a stupid thing and need some help. In a rush to change the oil in my 2000 BMW 323i, I accidently drained the oil from the wrong pan. The pan I drained was in the middle of the underneath side of the car. I believe it was the transmission fluid (brownish but very clean, which was how I determined this could not be my dirty motor oil). My questions are
1. Did I drain the transmission fluid?
2. How much transmission fluid and what kind do I need to add?
3. Where do I add the transmission fluid?
Much thanks in advance.

If you go to your local auto parts store, they sell a funnel that will allow you to put ATF into the transmission via the charge pipe. (This is where the ATF dipstick is.) That's the only way I've ever added ATF to people's transmissions. Hope this helps!
