First off. a 2000 daewoo??!! It's lucky to have run this long! You need to have the transmission fluid changed. I would NOT even drive it to a garage. Have it towed. How much oil did you put in?

Great site for car questions. They have likely already covered this exact situation.

Depends on how much you put in ! If more than one quart , then I would drain it and put the proper Trans fluid in . If less that a quart , you'll probably be OK . But Daewoo's aren't the greatest car and it's a 2000 , so I think I would drain it ! If you can't , take it to a Transmission shop and have Trans service !

DO NOT RUN. drop the pan change the filter/fluids allow to drain for several hrs. do not use kerosene to flush. let drain replace fluids filter pan,gasket if ness. read the bottle next time.

As said if it was less then a quart. No worries. More then that. Change it. The motor oil is a heavier viscosity with fewer detergents.
