Previous owner put gear oil in the differential, am I OK to just drain it out and fill with DEXRON II and call it good? Would it hurt to have a little oil mixed with the DEXRON?

It is a 89 2.0 Automatic with front wheel drive.

Justin, In the maintenance section of the manual I downloaded it specifies to use DEXRON II, is there a reason I should use type III.

Above the drain and fill plugs on 91 540e transaxle.
thick gear oil in the differential leads to scored pinion thrust washers; industrial oil 10 w can be used to flush the unit before filling with ATF DIII.
Some drivers used the procedure like this:
  • drain and fill differential with 10 weight oil.
  • set the parking brake
  • lift left front side of the car so the wheel is 1 inch above the ground; support the car on the stand and block the rigth front wheel.
  • start the engine
  • shift to drive; do not go over 10 mph per speedometer
  • after 5 minutes drain the oil [it can be hot] so be careful.
  • refill with Dextron III
