The oil light on my car was lit. So I check the level and found out that it was low. Got the Castrol 5-30 synthetic oil and added to the wrong well. I added half a quart to the well that said "aft" or "atf' oil only.
What this mishap will do to the car? What do I need to do? I think I'm screwed! Help please

The power steering can be flushed of the 5w-30 oil you mistakenly put in there, dont freak out. It will not damage anything if you flush it out. Don't drive the car with it in there. Be sure to put the oil in the square cap on top of the motor.
