'94 Leg with auto trans that has gear oil in the trans instead of ATF

Recommended Posts

So I'm working on a '94 Legacy, checked the trans dipstick, and the fluid is yellow, fairly certain it's gear oil.  As far as I know, these automatic transmissions are just supposed to use Dexron.


Anyone heard of gear old being used in the auto trans?  Is it bad? Should I leave it in there or drain it and put in Dexron?
