regular ATF is Dexron III/Mercon, so I dont really understand your question...if your trans calls for Dexron, Dexron III, then you already put in the right oil...if your trans calls for Dexron VI, then yes, you need to drain out what you put in and add the right stuff

if all else fails, read the label on the oil bottle, it actually says stuff about the oil there

not sure what kind of oil you had, but if it said on the bottle that it is not compatible to DexronIII or Mercon, I would toss it
