Hello

You need to drain and refill your transmission. The transmission fluid has to hold up to a lot of heat. If you are not sure how to do this then take it to several transmission shops and get an estimate to have change. That is the best thing.

Hello

Also, it looks like you may have some recalls on your vehicle. The dealer may fix these for free. Please contact the dealer service department, give them the VIN number of your car and have them check on these to see if they apply to you.

ATF and power steering fluid are interchangeable with each other and the small amount of power steering fluid is just a drop in the bucket in the total transmission capacity. I wouldn't worry about it at all.
