johnbmw530i is an unknown quantity at this point
What will happen if I stupidly added engine oil (a small amount) to the atf intake? What corrective action should I take. I have not driven the car since.

What do you mean by ATF intake? Do you mean the power steering reservior? the cap on the reservior reads ATF fluid only on some models....Is it?

Not to worry since you haven't driven the car.......now you have to get the oil out but how? Choices if you don't want to pay for a pro:

A. drain it through one of the 2 hoses on the buttom or better yet
B. The way I do it; I use a turkey baster (spelling?) from the kitchen to suck up the fluid out of the canister till empty....refill with ATF; suck it up for a couple of times it should clean it...I know it sounds crazy but it works for me!!! good luck

Oh for the baster here it is:
