Re: Am I screwed?

Most transmissions take 10w 40 or heavier. If i remember correctly some of the old construction equipment took 90W. Gear oil is not ATF. Check the manuel or manufacturer.

Re: Am I screwed?

close call. ATF eats normal seals. 5 wt oil is possible substitute. If it calls for ATF
give it ATF.
