Umm, power steering fluid is pretty much the same as ATF.

depends on what kind of p\s fluid. vw audi use a green mineral dased fluid.ford does use atf .so what kind did she use?

I hope that she can tell the difference, other than that you are screwed. You will have to completely flush the tranny. Try about $100-$200 for a good flush.
